Tyler, Tex., Also Suffers 

From a Frightful 


Mossville, Miss., Feb. 15.— Four whole 
buildings and two halves of buildings 
are the only habitable adobes in this 
village today. The reminder of the 
structures were blown down and manj 
of them swept outside of the town by 
yesterdays tornado. Two old negroes, 
Alex Windham and his wife, are dead, 
and Edward Campbell, white, is prob- 
ably fatally injured. Of the dozen 
other persons painfully injured at this 
place all are rapidly recovering. He- 
porls rtaching here from other towns 
In the tornados path give not to ex- 
ceed five other fatalities, only one ot 
which has betn confirmed. 

The buildings left s»tanding here are 
two residences, a cotton gin and a 
school house. The buildings which the 
storm cut in two are the Gulf & Ship 
Island railroad depot and a residence. 

The station master happened to be 
in the half of the depot which was left 
standing and was M;arcely disturbed 
when the other half of his habitation 
went down in a heap and then Hew 
away I'itcemeal. 

Sfattert'd Over Four Miles. 

The inhabitants of Mossville claim 
that their village was scattered at least 
over four miles of territory, this state- 
ment being based on the identification 
of a hatciiet picked up by a farmer 
four miles from here as part of the 
stock of the general store of the vil- 
Jage. The contents of this store was 
scattered over at least half a mile of 
ground in the direction taken by the 
wind. Sturdy oaks were uprooted in 
the main streets of the town. 

The tornado cut a swath several 
miles long through the timt)er, and al- 
most every other obstruction on the 
face of the country. who have

Affording General Relief 

From Abolishment of 

Telegraph Service. 

Madison, Wis.. Feb. 15.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— Because the telegraph 
oompanies and not the railroad com- 
panies arf? responsible for inadequate 
telegraph service In the state, and be- 
cause the constitutionality of the eight 
hour telegraphers' service law is being 
tested, the state railroad commission 
announced that it can not issue a gen- 
eral order aftording relief from the in- 
convenience and annoyance resulting 
from the reduction or abolition of tele- 
graph service at many villages and 
cities. The commission says that if 
any particular place feels satisfied thai 
Its telegraph .service is inadeqpale with- 
in the meaninng of the railroad com- 
mission law, the commission will enter- 
tain complaints with reference to aach 
service and make whatever order the 
facts and the law may require. 

The commission reviews the testi- 
mony given at the hearing on Jan. 20 
regarding telegraph service in the 
state, and j^ays that nothing wab 
Bhown there which wouid juslify il in 
issuing a general relief order. Tne con- 
tracts between the railroad and tele- 
graph companies make the latter re- 
sponsible for all commercial messages. 
Of the forty-one Western Union otfices 
closed since the tight hour service law- 
went into effect, none hao receipts of 
over $3.50 a month. The average re- 
ceipts 90 Cents. Obviously the commis- 
sion could not issue an order compell- 
ing the Western L'nion to maintain of- 
fices at such unremuneratJve points.

New York, Feb. 15.— There will be no

Made by New York Mer- 
chant for Not Pay- 
ing Bill. 

New York, Feb. 15.— New York's 
anti-tipping law was the defense in an 
action to lecover $1,555 for goods sold, 
brought by a dealer against a large 
dry goods hou.^e in New York, and de- 
cided yesterday. The court held that 
the bill could not be collected. It was 
shown that the selling the goods 
made the purchasing agent who bought 
them a present of $75. The court held 
that the firm sued was not obliged to 
pay for the goods, nor was it compelled 
to return them. The law was passed at 
the Instance of merchants to break up 
the system, which is said to have been 
more or less prevalent of dealers in- 
ducing purchasing agents to buy goods

7 per cent, and that he sold a weekly- 
paper on Saturdays to add to his in- 
come. "And I have other irons in the

Are Pleased Wltli Favor-

News 'reached Duluth today of the 
favorahle reportli^g of the bill raising 
the pay of ;h^ United States regulars 
from the present wage of $13 to $17 
a month: The original bill has been 
modified 'Ho thaV the. Increased pay 
does not include the officers. 

There was a little joy feast among 
the marines ahd Infaiitrymen sta- 
tioned here when . the news of the 
probable pas.-jajge of the bill weis 
learned. The soldiers who are sta- 
tioned here for ; recruiting duty have 
been impatiently 'awaiting some favor- 
able news of the bill's progress, so 
that the hiformatlon that the military 
committees of both hotis&s has passed 

favorably upon it came as a most 
agreeable .surprise. 

If the bill Is passed It will mean that 
about $4,000,000 additional appropri- 
ation will have to be made for the 

It has been extremely difficult to en- 
llst-^men under the old pay of $13 per 
month. Until the"la.xt two weeks the 
Duluth office has had some difliculty 
In getting men, liut In the event of the 
passage of the bill not only a ^more 
desirable class of men would be at- 
tracted to the army, .but It Is estimat- 
ed that many of the .Soldiers who have 
left the service would re-enlist. 

Because he is believed to have lured 
Pa.t McMillan into a room in the Six,th 
Avenue hotel, last Tuesday night, and 
relieved him of $15, Moses Hall, who 
says he came from Fl<x>odwood, was 
held to the grand jury this morning, 
after a hearing before Judge Cutting, 
in municipal court. 

McMillan and Ernest Liesen the 
clerk of the hotel, were the witnesses 
against Hall. McMillan didn't know 
much about the oa.'+e. as he was dead 
t(j th<> world when he was •rolled," l>ut 
Liesen, who played the part of the de- 
tective, made out a strong case against 

Acoording to the testimony, McMiU 
Ian, who Is a good-natured old Irish- 
man, was drinking in- the sal>jon in 
connection with the hotel, and spend- 
ing his money with a free hand. Hall 
saw that the old man hau a nice little 
roll, and he is .^aid to have stuck pretty 
close to him all evening. Finally, ac- 
cording to the testimony of the clerk, 
Hall induced the old man to engage a. 
ro<im and pay the lodging of lx)th men. 
The clerk became suspicious, and set 
a watch on the room. He said McMil- 
lan had ho .sooner thrown himself on 
the bed than Hail went into a shirt 
pocket and drew out some money. 

When Hall was ai-resled a $5 bill was 
taken from him. and later it was dis- 
covered he had one of the same de- 
nomination in each shoe. He protested 
his innocence of the robbery all the 
way through, and was much put out 
when remanded to the county jail to 
await the action of the grand jury.

Club Meeting. 

Last night, at the meetmg of the 
West Duluth Commercial club, W. 
B. Getchell, one of the committee 
appointed to promote the matter of 
getting a larger building for the siib- 
postofiice, said that several parties 
were figuring on the proposition and 
would probably submit their bids to- 
day to Postmaster Eaton, to be for- 
warded to the government for ap- 
proval. Mr. Getchell also said there 
had been .some talk of trying to get 
the recently vacated Mulligan .saloon 
building for the branch office, but 
he understood some parties are ap- 
plying to the council for a license 
to reopen that saloon. It Is doubt- 
ful If the council would grant this, 
and in case they did not, the chances 
for getting it for a po.stofflce are 
very good. It Is a building well 
suited to the purpose of the ofl[lce. 

The reports of the Oneota street 
committee and the club banquet 
committee were also read, the ban- 
quet's date has been changed from 
March 17 to March 11. 

"Personal** Want Ad Tells 

Story of Sudden 


"WANTED — To meet a fair young 
lady, wearing a light colored veil." 

It wa.s at the*recent hockey game 
that he became smitten by the fair 
charmer. , He could only admire at 
a distance, for she was accompanied 
by an escort who was big and — well, 
not mild looking. So after the 

game he followed her, at a safe dis- 
tance, memorizing each detail of 
face and dress, until he could give 
a description of his near-aflflnity 
that would have delighted a sleuth 
of the Nick Carter type. 

But how to meet her. she with 
the light-colored veil? "I have It," 
he cried, "I will use the want ad. 
t)ersonal," and he did. 

So the want ad. that breatiies of 
romance duly appeared. Has she 
seen It? That's the question. Will 
she answer It? That's another. 

The young lady lives in the West 
end — that much was gleaned from

These were the words muttered by a

he rubbed his eyes and surveyed his 

About two years ago Julius Cook 
kept a saloon in wliat is now the space 
occupied by the Spalding billiard hall. 
Like other Michigan street liquor re- 
freshment emporiums, it was a place 
frequented by lumberjacks, in fact, It 
was one of the favorite hangouts. 

The furnishings of the Cook place 
were not anything to make you rea<:h 
for your eye gla.sses, and there wasn't 
any statuary in the old place. The 
present billiard hall Vute been reno- 
vated somewhat and , presents a dif- 
ferent appearance from the whilom 
woodsmen's thirst quencher. 

So It was with aplomb and confidence 
that the jacky opened the door of the' 
billiard room and walked into the place. 
He hadn't been in the city for over 
three years and he expected to greet 
some old companions and make some 
new ones in his former trysling place. 

Instead of the macklnawed knight of 
the woods, ci-ooking the elbow and im- 
mer.sed in joyous revelry, he beheld 
staid and well dressed business men 
and nattily garbed traveling men en- 
gaged in the game of billiards. The 
transition was tiX) great for Jack to 
grasp its full significance In one look. 
He stalled for time. 

It was only when the porter asked

A Strange Business Duel 

THe Partners is the most extraordinary 
story of business published in recent years; one 
of the strangest duels known to business history. 
On the one hand are opposed all the subtleties, 
all the ruses and expedients known to the mind 
of a highly trained financier. On the other are 
deployed the magnificent resources of strength, 
energy, organization and combative spirit that 
animate the pioneer's soul. 

THe Partners is Stewart Edward White^'s 
story of the riverman — the man who gets the 
logs to market — whose success is measured by 
his ability to deliver the goods; to whom 
obstacles mean something to overcome; peril 
a thing to laugh at. 

THe Partners has all the fascination of 
Stewart Edward White's earlier stories of the 
woods; the toil, the danger of lumbering; the 
humor and the tragedy of it. But it is greater 
than Mr. White's earlier work.

American Battleship Fleet 

Passes Chilean Port 

Going North. 

Valparaiso, Feb. 15. — The great 
American fleet of sixtt-en battleships. 
under the eommanc^. of Rear Admiral 
Evan.s, passed Valparaiso yesterday 
afternoon and continued on its voy- 
age northward for Callao, Peru, the 
next stopping place. All Valparaiso 
and thousands of persons from every 
city in Chile witnessed the passing 

of the fleet. President Monte and 
other high officials of the republic 
came out from shore to great the 
battleships and almost the entire 
<'hilean navy exchanged salutes with 
the American ships. 

President Monte and other Chilean 
officials embarked on the training 
ship, General Baquodano. and took 
a position well out in the harbor. 
Around the Baquedano, the fleet 
swung at a speed of four knots, 
firing the pre.sidential salute as they 
passed in review. It was one hour 
from the time the head of the fleet 
entered the bay until the last vessel 
had passed the president's ship and 
turned toward the open seas. Then 
the Baqu»-dano lifted anchor and es- 
corted the fleet well out of the bay 
and on its way to the north. It 
was a view such as never has been 
.seen in Valparaiso bay, and one that 
will long be remembered Vjy the peo- 
jtle of Chile, who came miles to see

Albert Ostrom, Vagrant, 
Furnishes Three Sensa- 
tions in Three Days. 

Albert Ostrom has been leading the 
strenuous life. At the present time he 
is passing through a stage of the de- 
lirium tremens al the police station, 
awaiting his hearing on the charge of 
vagrancy. This trouble, however, is 
but a drop in the bucket as compared 
with the exciting events that Ostrom 
has figured in within the past five 

Ostrom came into the limelight in 
Superior, Feb. 10, when he was ejected 
from a street car at Tower and Bel- 
knap for drunkenness and using ob- 
scene language. 

Thereafter Ostrom seemed to have 
but one Idea, that of getting even with 
the street railway company. The 
methods lie undertook to accomplish 
his revenge, however, were of the un- 
usual sort and nearly caused two 
motormen to have attacks of heart dis- 

The day following his ejectm^fent from 

the car Ostrom deliberately laid down 

in front of a rapidly moving car on 

the South Superior He and had to be 
dragged off by the motorman, who 
stopped the car close to his body. 

The next day Ostrom, while walking 
down Tower avenue with some com- 
panions. In a drunken condition, jump- 
ed in front of another street car and 
was saved from death only by the 
presence of mind and quick efforts of 
the motorman. When the car stopped 
the fender was touching Ostrom's 

The Superior police gathered Ostrom 
in after this stunt and he was tagged 
a vagrant by the municipal court with 
the order- that he get out of that city 
as fast as possible. 

Boarding the ferry boat for Duluth, 
Ostrom, seeming to recollect that he 
was not carrying out his Intention of 
furnishing a daily sensation for the 
public, jumped overboard and was 
nearly drowned in the icy waters of the 
bay. The tug crew pulled him out and 
turned him over to the police, who had 
word that Ostrom was on his way to 
Duluth. He was hustled to the police 
station where he was been ever since. 

O.Strom will probably be found a 
vagrant and the local authorities will 
be confronted fith the problem of get- 
ting rid of him. 

Ostrom claims his residence is "Du- 
luth-Superior." Both cities are re- 
luctant about claiming him as a citizen 
and there is the possibility that If he 
gets out of the hands of the police he 
will attempt to stop some more cars 
by getting under the wheels. 

So far as known Ostrom has no rela- 
tives that will look after him, although 
it has been suggested that some might 
turn up to claim damages if he hap- 
pened to be killed by the cars. 


Reason Why It is Part of 
f/ic Montreal Office. 

Some Facts Regarding tlie 

Inspectors janrf Tlieir 

Work. ' 

. A good deal of curiosity has been ex- 
prc'ssed in Duluth from time to time as 
tio how it comes thaC the local United 
States immigration office is under tiie 
supervision of an ©Oce in Montreal, 
Canada, which is the head of the 
whole border service. .The general pub- 
lic cannot understand why an Import- 
ant office of this nature is established 
In another country, when it is intended 
to control the actions of offlcials on this 
side of the border. 

As a matter of fact, the immigration 
officers of the United States are in 
Montreal at the express Invitation of 
the Canadian government and the Do^ 
.minion transportation companies, and 
the fact of their l)elng there prevents 
an Immense amount of inconvenience 
to the traveling public that otherwis-3 
anight arise through the enforcement of 
the United States immagratjon laws at 
the border. 

Canada herself has no reason to com- 
plain of these laws, considering that 
under them the Canadian is frankly 
recognized and treated as a brother, 
and considering also that the Domin- 
ion government is itself every year be- 
coming more and more particular as to 
the quality of the people admitted into 

From the fact of the United States 
havitig laws of thljj ki«d, it follows 
naturally that government supervision 
(must be exercised over the pe<iple en- 
tering this coimtry, not only by way of 
the seaports, but also over the bordei 
di\-lding it from Canada. Now there 
are certain people who, under the reg- 
ulations, would be refused admission 
at the border, and others who would 
not l>e admitted until after certain 
formaJities and inqurrie,><, which might 
Lvccupy onsiderable tl|ne, had been gone 
through. , 

To take a journey to a border town 
only to find that adjnission was re- 
fused, or only granted after a most 
annoying delay, would certainly be a 
great inconvenience to travelers, and 
the fact that all the formalities neces- 
sary can be complied, with before set- 
ting out on the journey is an advantage 
of which travelers ought to be the last 
to complain. 

Had to Go to Border. 

Formerly all travelers from Canada 
to the [■'nited States h;vd to go to the 
border and take their chance, but for 
the last .six years the T-n,ited States 
immigration bureau has maintained an 
office in Montreal, in cliarge of a resi- 
dent commissioner of immigration. 
There is a sub-office of a similar nature 
In the other great Canadian travtl- 
center, Winnipeg, and offlcePB of the de- 
jartment are also maintained at Que- 
bec, St. John, Halifr.x and Vancouver, 
and at all principal points along the 
border, such as Duiuth, where Inspec- 
tor in Charge William H. Dean and 
assistants have an office. 

The officers at all these places are 
under the immediate control of the 
commisslone'- in charge of the head 
office in Montreal, John H. Clark, and 
they have to "keep in such con^ant 
touch with him that the records of an 
immigrant or traveler arriving in Can- 
ada, or passing through to the United 
States, are at once available in Mon- 
treal, so that questions arising as to 
identity can immediately be settled. 

It was primarily with a view to pre- 
vent delay at the border that the office 
was established in Montreal. The num- 
ber of immigrants destined to the 
United States who are brought to trils 
continent by the Canadian shipping 
companies, and the number of immi- 
grants who, after they have been a 
short time in the Dominion, decide to 
come to the slates, is now so great that 
it became necessary that in Montreal, 
the principal center of transportation 
in the country to the north, there 
should be a place where such immi- 
grants could be examined, both medi- 
cally and civilly, as to tlieir admissabil- 
ity to the United States. The Montreal 
office therefore has a. staff of interpre- 
ters speaking almost every language 
under the sun, together with doctors, 
statistians, clerks and officers compe- 
tent to form a board of inquiry for 
special cases. If immigrants going 
there to be examind are found satis- 
factory, they are given a certificate of 
admission, which they surrender to the 
inspector at the border, and which 
avoids the necessity for further in- 
spection. If the immigrants are found 
unsatisfactory, they are told at once 
that they cannot be admitted, and they 
remain In Canada, for they have al- 
ready passed the less vigorous inspec- 
tion of the Canadian immigration of- 
ficers at the port of entry. 

Canadians Must Koprlstcr. 

Ajiother matter that is now being at- 
tended to by Commissioner Clark and 
his staff is the carrying out of the new- 
law which requires that ail Canadian 
citizens coming to the United States 
for permanent residence must be reg- 
istered. The officers have to make the 
necessary records and issue the regis- 
tration papers. These latter are valu- 
able to the holder, for under the new 
Unitec* States naturalization law, the 
record of entry into the country must 
be shown before naturalization is 
granted. Hundreds of such prospective 
citizens pass through Duluth, on their 
way from Canada, and are placed on 
record by Inspector in Charge Dean and 
his assistants. 

Then again the same staff has to at- 
tend to the deportation of all those en- 
tering the United States from Canada 
who within three years become charges 
on the public funds. The law is such

brought such people to the continent 
have to return them to the port of em- 
barkation, where they are turned over 
to the authorities and .returned to their 
old homes. Tlie steamship company 
stands half the cost of inland trans- 
portation in America and all other 
transportation expenses. 

Arrangements nave also to be made 
for the return of such Canadians as 
become public charges in the United 
States. Similar investigations have 
to be made into the cases of citizens 
of the United States who became pub- 
lic charges In Canada, and arrange- 
ments made for their return to proper 
institutions of the locality from which 
they came originally In the United 
States. Another thing upon which the 
officers have to keep a close watch is 
to prevent smuggling of undesirable 
aliens across the border. In this re- 


City Water Will Hereafter 

be Measured for All 


Water and Light Com- 
missioners Take the 
Expected Action. 

The board of water and light com- 
missioners, at a meeting held yestei> 
day afternoon, adopted a resolution 
abolishing the all flat rate asse.ssments 
for water consumption and establish- 
ing a universal meter rate. 

This action of the board was fore- 
casted by The Herald several days ago, 
it being known at tliat time that the 
sentiment of the commissioners was 
strongly for the meter rate instead of 
the flat rate. The change Is made be- 
cause the department feels that It will 
be an Injustice to the people using 
meters if the flat rate is continued any 
longer. Hereafter, as soon as the 
meters can be established, all the water 
furnished by the city water plant will 
be measured. 

Following Is the resolution of the 
board of water and light commis- 

"It is resolved. That the installation 
of water meters upon all consumption 
is hereby determined upon as the policy 
of this department; and to the end that 
this may be accomplished systematic- 
ally, it is hereby ordered that the in- 
troduction of meters be immediately 
required upon such public or business 
consumption as is not already metered; 
also upon all occupied residence prop- 
erties that contain 7,000 square feet of 
land and having also more than one 
bath, or one clo.set, or one basin for 
the use of one family. 

"The regulation of the board, re- 
quiring the expense for the meter and 
its installation shall rest on the con- 
sumer, will continue to prevail." 

The board, which is comprised of 
T. T. Hudson, president; J. B. Erd, 
vice president; George Spencer, H. 
H. Phelps and L. B. Manley, all well 
known business and professional men, 
has given the subject of water rates 
careful study for several months, and 
they are unanimous in the opinion 
that the meter rate should prevail. 

Attention is called to the fact that 
two-thirds of the receipts of the de- 
partment from water consumption are 
already being obtained through the 
the use of meters, and the board be- 
lieves that it will be no hardship to 
require the other one-third to submit 
to the same conditions. 

The meter rate is 17% cents per 
100 feet, which allows the use of 43 
gallons of water for one cent. It is 
claimed that with care the payments 
should, undoubtedly, be less than 
under the flat rate. 

The economy suggested consists in 
keeping the plumbing In repair and 
shutting off of the faucet after all 
the water needed is drawn. 

The public is asked to remember 
that this action by the board is en- 
tirely In the Interests of the people, 
for their benefit only, and that no 
other motive has influenced the com- 
missioners In the adoption of the res- 
olution. The members of the board 
have expressed the hope that their 
fellow citizens will cheerfully comply 
with the requirement. 

spect it may be pointed out that Cana- 
da has a much more rigorous iaw than 
the United States. For instance, any 
Canadian immigation or other govern- 
ment officer can, without a warrant, 
arrest an Immigrant and remove him 
from the country by force If necessary, 
but the United States does not accord 
its officers the same privilege. 

Once a man gets over the border 
Into this country, he causes no end of 
trouble before he can be deported. 
Inspector In Charge Dean in Duluth 
always has several of these deporta- 
tion cases on hand, and a largo ball of 
red tape has to be unwound before the 
undesirable immigrant can be forced 
out of the country. First of all, a 
warrant has to be obtained for the 
man's arrest. The officers have to send 
to Washington for it, and that con- 
sumes some little time. Then the man 
is brought before the inspector, ac- 
companied by an attorney, if he so 
desires, and the evidence heard. Then 
the evidence, in the form of questions 
and answers, has to be sent to Wash- 
ington, via Montreal, if in the Mon- 
treal district, as is the case with Du- 
luth, and only the secretary of the Im- 
migration bureau at Washington has 
a right to say what shall be done with 
the man or woman. If it is decided to 
deport him, it is necessary for a war- 
rant to be issued the officers by the 
secretary. All this takes time, espe- 
cially in the case of western stations 
like Duluth. The law is framed, of 
course, to insure absolute justice being 
done the immigrant, but at the same 
time it seems rather cumbersome to a 
good many people, and iTot all of the 
latter are outside the service. 

Then, again, no single Immigration 
officer of the United States has a right 
to deny any applicant admission to the 
United States. If he has any doubt as 
to the admissablllty of an alien the 
alien must appear before a board of 
special inquiry, comprised of three 
special inspectors, and only that body 
can deny admission. Duluth has such 
a board. When this board excludes 
a person, only the secretary of the 
bureau at Washington can order oth- 
erwise. During the past fiscal year 
64,000 aliens were examined by the 
staff under Commissioner Clark's di- 

ure duties — the advantages and hard- 
ships of an army career — Secretary of 
War \V. H. Tafti yesterday presented 
diplomas to the 108 members of the 
graduating class of the United Stales 
military academy. 

The secretary impressed upon the 
young men who were commissioned as 
second lieutenants in the army that 
the military service must ever be su- 
bordinate to the civil government and 
that it was the soldier's duty to "keep 
his mouth shut and obey orders." 

The young soldiers were called to re- 
ceive their diplomas in the order of 
class standing. The honor of heading 
the list fell to Cadet Glen E. P^lberton 
of Manhattan, Riley county, 

Mr. Taft congratulated him heartily 
upon his success. George R. Goethal.s, 
who stood fourth in his class, Is the 
son of Col. Goethals of the Engineer- 
ing Corps of the army, who now is in 
charge of the construction of the Pana- 
ma Canal. Col. Goethals was present 
when his son was handed the diploma.

By Democrats of Wiscon- 
sin to Attend the Na- 
tional Convention. 

Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. 15. — The 
Wisconsin delegation to the National 
Democratic convention at Denver, 
Colo., was yesterday at the closing .ses- 
sion of the state convention instructed 
to vote as a unit for William Jennings 
Bryan as the Democratic nominee for 
president first, last and all the time. 
The platform containing these instruc- 
tions was unanimously adopted by the 
convention by a rising vote. 

The delegates at large named to at- 
tend the national convention are as 
follows; Congressman Charles H. 
Weisse, Sheboygan Falls; Herbert H. 
Manson, W^ausau; John A. Aylward, 
Madison; Melvin A. Hoyt, Milwaukee. 

The alternates are: Patrick H. Mar- 
tin, Green Bay; Congressman James 
W. Murphy, Platteville; Daniel H. 
Grady, Portage; Thomas J. Fleming, 
Milwaukee. , 

The delegates named by the con- 
vention will be voted upon at the com- 

ing primary election and will be elect- 
ed without opposition. 

In the contest for delegates at large, 
somewhat of a sensation was sprung 
by Daniel H. Grady, who, after th» 
nominations had been closed, askell 
permission to speak to a question of 
personal privilege. Mr. Grady upon 
taking the floor, charged John A. Ayl- 
ward of Madison of not always being 
a Bryan Democrat and cited several 
instances, to which he asked Mr. Ayl- 
ward to make reply. Mr. Aylward 
claimed he was and always had been 
a good Bryan Democrat and was with 
him first, last and all the time. It 
was very apparent from the ballot 
which followed that Grady's action re- 
sulted in the loss to himself of a large 
number of votes, Aylwa»d having re- 
ceived 391 to Grady's 153 votes.

Consumers' Ore Company 

Must Pay Him for 


A jury in Judge Cant's room yester- 
day afternoon decided -that Nestor 
Raittlla was entitled to $3,000 dam- 
ages against the Consumers' Ore com- 
pany for injuries which he received 
while employed as a laborer at the 
Yates mine, near Buhl, in November, 

The case has been on trial for the 
past several days, Heino & Hollister 
appearing for Raittila, and E. C. Ken- 
nedy for the mining company. The 
jury was out but a short time. 

According to the testimony the ore 
was removed at the mine by means of 
a large dipper attached to the arm of 
a crane. Several tons of frozen ore 
that could not be taken up by the 
dipper -^vere attached to It by a chain. 
It is claimed that while the arm was 
swinging around with the heavy load 
of ore a part of the frozen mass struck 
Raittila and broke his leg, besides in- 
juring hi.s hip and back. Negligence 
on the part of the company and its 
other employes was alleged.

Convinces A Doubting Thomas. 

Dr. T. P. Palmer, a strong temperance man, who is an ardent advocate of Duffy's Pure 
Malt Whiskey on account of its purity, received letters from many prominent^ 
clergymen and temperance women, among them a Presbyterian clergyman 
asking if his statements were genuine, and if he had secured the results 
from Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey as claimed. 

The following is Dr. Palmer's re- 
ply to the clergymen : 

Reverend Sir: I take pleasure in 
replying to yours of February 21st, 

addressed to Rev. asking for 

my standing as a physician and citi- 

Yes, the testimonial I have given 
the Duffy Malt Whiskey Company 
is genuine. I am not a practising 
physician at the present time, but I 
am a graduate of the Jefferson Medi- 
cal College Philadelphia class of 
187G, and if you will pardon me, I 
will say, .without egotism that I can 
get anything I wish at any mercan- 
tile house either in this place or 
Union City (our county town) on 
credit if I wish, though I generally 
pay cash. As to my commercial 
standing, I refer you to the Commer- 
cial Bank of Union City. 

I am a married man, have five 
children, two of whom are girls. I 
belong to the Christian Church, and 
am a strong temperance man. On 
the temperance question you and I 
differ only as to the means to attain 
the end. 

Now let me tell you why I hap- 
pened to write this testimonial. A 
year ago I was threatened with 
grave stomach trouble from an in- 
cipient inflammation. I tried a bot- 
tle of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey, 
taking a tablespoonful, heavily di- 
luted with water, before each meal. 
It made me well. I wrote the Duffy Malt Whiskey Company and they asked permission to use my tes- 
timonial. I then wrote the testimonial above referred to and gave my permission to use it. In conclu- 
sion I will say, I pay $41.99 taxes each year; have never been arrested, nor have I at any time or place, 
directly or indirectly, been engaged in the liquor trAific. With kind feelings toward you, I am, most re- 
spectfully, your brother. — T. P. PALMER, Rives, Tenn. 

Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey 

is an absolutely pure distillation of malted grain; great care being used to have every kernel thoroughly malted, thus 
destroying the germ and producing a predigested liquid food in the form of a malt essence, which is the most effect- 
ive tonic stimulant and invigorator known to science; softened by warmth and moisture, its palatability and freedom 
from injurious substances render it so that it can be retained by the most sensitive stomach. 

If you wish to keep young, strong and vigorous and have on your cheeks the glow of perfect health, take Duffy's 
Pure Malt Whiskey regularly, according to directions. It tones and strengthens the heart action and purifies the

mazoo hall last evening. There was 
also quite a lot of special business that 
came up for consideration. There were 
talks relative to tlie new Women's 
LAbel league that is being formed in 
Duluth, and success was predicted for 
the movement. Mrs. W. A. Warn- 
necka, organizer for the new league 
In Duluth. spoke of the work and plans 
of the organization, and gave a very 
Interesting talk. There were about a 
dozen members of the league present.

on trade conditions as follows: Black- 
smiths. duTl; cement workers, dull;

After the routine business had been 
transacted. President Perault cordially 
welcomed members of the label league 
who were present, and Invited them to 
tell something of their work and plans. 
Mrs. Warnnecka responded. She said 
the pioneers In the league movement 
in Duluth felt much encouraged over 
the outlook, both as to their own work, 
and as to the chances of the unions 
winning out in their present struggle 
against the open shop. She was con- 
fident organized labor would win the 
fight. In regard to the league, she as- 
serted that while they had no treasury 
at present, they would have no trouble 
in getting money enough to carry on 
their work with. She made a plea for 
the men to help in the work, and de- 
manded the union label wherever pos- 
sible. Mrs. Warnnecka named two or 
three department stores that already 
had been blacklisted by the league, 
and said other stores probably would be 
added to the list. Any member of the 
league caught making purchases at 
these places will be fined, and sentries 
may be employed to see that- members 
do not so trade. The unfair list will 
consist of .such firms as refuse to rec- 
ognize labor by purchasing union made 
goods wherever possible.

W. O. Shardt, chairman of the gen- 
eral executive board of the national or- 
ganization of carpenters and Joiners, 
delivered a few remarks, telling how 
everything appeared to be moving 
along nicely in the present labor 
trouble in Duluth. He expressed him- 
self as being absolutely sure the unions 
would win out in the fight. He said 
that the unions had practically won a 
victory in the fight against the open 
shop In Washington, D. C, despite 
newspaper reports to the contrary, 
and asserted that there were only three 
carpenters now in need of financial as- 
sistance In the national capital. Mr. 
Shardt gave a talk about the union 
label, and urged the men to demand It 
whenever and wherever making pur- 

G. B. Howley, president of the 
Minnesota State Federation of Labor, 
spoke regarding the label league, 
and told what good It could accom- 
plish if given the proper support. 
He said the ladies were starting out 
in the right way, and paid them a 
compliment for the energy and pro- 
gre-sslveness they were displaying. He 
said he had several compliments to 
hand out, and proceeded to hand a 
nice one to the Duluth unions for 
the manner in which they have con- 
ducted the fight, and to the Feder- 
ated Trades a.ssembly for the har- 
niony that prevails in its ranks. He 
said he had never before seen a 
central labor organization where 
there was so little dissension, and 
so little knocking. He paid a 

flowery tribute to W. E. McEwen for 
good work performed in the labor 
movement, and thanked the Duluth 
delegation for the support given him 
in his election as president of the 
state federation. 

In regard to his recent trip 
through Minesota and into the Da- 
kotaa, Mr. Howley said it brought 
u smile to his face that wouldn't 
come off, so satisfactory did he find 
conditions all along the line. He 
also told of speaking before the 
Society of Equity at Eau Claire, 
Wis., and said the farmers could do 
more than any one else to help 
along the union label movement. He 
told of how' the meeting had boy- 
cotted magazines not published In a 
union shop, and of the loyal sup- 
port members of the society had 
promised, and were already extend- 
ing. He believed the Society ot 

Equity would mean the solving of 
the label problem. In closing, he 
remarked that he might be called 
away from Duluth before the next 
meeting of the assembly, and said 
he wished to tell of the pleasure his 
visit to the city had occasioned him. 
He said he would always have a 
warm spot In his heart for Duluth. 
James Walsh spoke on the label 
league, characterizing It as the best 
organization that ever had been 
started by women In Duluth. He 
had a lot of nice things to say about 
Mr. Howley, and also seconded Mr. 
Howlcy's compliments to Mr. Mc-

Frank M. Eddy Will Deliver Talk on ''Temperance'' 

at First M. £. Church. 

The new church building, which ' the 
Baptists have been erecting at the corner 
of Ninth avenue east and First street,

Rot>ert Knebel, who was auch a favorite 
singer while she was Mving here, has 
been secured by the committee to sing at

consented to come. 

A busier crowd of people one can sel-

of the First Baptist congregation at the

their society pledged towards the build- 
ing fund to furnish their parlors 
and kitohen. The men are trying to find 
out the names of the Baptists In the city, 
who .have never identified themselves 
with the local ohureh here and to whom 
they want to send a special Invitation.

full with work in one direction or an-

Baltimore American: The I'tlca minis- 
ter who has started a series of meetings 
at which women can assemble and relieve 
their minds by indulging unmolested In 
gossip, should remember that gossip Is not 
confined to any one sex. However, the 
men will doubtless induce their respective 
wives to detail to them the choicest and 
most scandalous stories upon their return 
home, and in this way benefit by the min- 
ister's sclieme. 

Philadelphia Ledger: A churtSh In Jer- 
sey City is Inclined to call a certain man 
to Its pulpit, but the objection has ari.scn 
that he has .seven children. This domestic 
circumstance the thrifty congregation 
fears will necessitate a larger salary than 
it cares to pay. Perhaps tlie objection is 
sound. To see the minister wearing shiny 
clothes and his wife a shabby dress and 
year-before-last bonnet Is trying enough, 
but the thought of seven youngsters, each 
reproachfully hungry, is enough to give 
pause. The alternative of paying a fair 
salary and not taking any official count 
of the ministerial babies is, of course, loo 
radical to be considered. 


Twice- Told Testimony 

Duluth People Are Doing All TTiey 
Can for Fellow Sufferers. 

Duluth testimony has been pub- 
lished to prove the merit of Doan's 
Kidney Pills to others In Duluth, who 
suffer from bad backs and kidney Ills. 
Lest any sufferer doubt that the cures 
made by Doan's Kidney Pills are thor- 
ough and lasting, we produce con- 
flrnied proof — statements from Duluth 
people saying that the cures they told 
of years ago were permanent. Here's 
a Duluth case: 

Mrs. C. M. Bradley, dressmaker, of 
109 First street, east, Duluth, Minn., 
says: "Since giving a testimonial for 
publication some six years ago, which 
has appeared at Intervals in our Du- 
luth papers, and in which I told of the 
gratifying benefit I obtained from the 
use of Doan's Kidney Pills, my faith 
in this remedy has only Increased. Not 
only myself but numerous friends have 
found that Doan's Kidney Pills are a 
remedy that can be relied upon. I 
used to suffer from aching pains In the 
small of my back so that I couldn't 
stoop nor rest at night. This trouble 
Is now a thing of the past and the ac- 
tion of the kidney secrvtions has also 
been regulated. I unhesitatingly rec- 
ommend Doan's Kidney Pills at every

the headwaters of the Allegheny

tonight and should It occur, it Is 
thought the record of last year's 
great flood will not be reached. The 
stage at this city, however, it is pre- 
dicted will bring the water upon 
Penn avenue in the downtown dis- 
trict. This will bo s-ufflcient to 
cripple several theaters and cause a 
suspension In many stores and manu- 
facturing plants. 

Flood stages are reported from all 
points above here. At Franklin, Pa., 
the water is 7 feet above the danger 
mark this morning, and rising. A 
similar situation prevails at John- 
stown, Freeport, Warren, Greensboro 
and other places.

Indianapolis, Ind.. Feb. 15. — While 
Northern and Central Indiana Is 
swept by snow and wind storms to- 
day, the southern part of the state is 
suffering from floods. Reports from 
Princeton, Vincennes, Evansvllle and 
other points express fear of an un- 
u.sually high .«tage of water. Rivers 
are out of bank and in several coun- 
ties bridges have been carried away, 
and buildings in the lowlands are 
under water. 

Waters Rising; in Kentucky. 

Lexington, Ky., Feb. I.t. — Streams 
throughout Eastern Kentucky are ris- 
ing rapidly as a re.sult of the four- 
days' rain and great damage is feared 
by lumber concerns along the K* n- 
tucky, the Red, Cumberland. Licking 
and Big Sandy rivers. River men 

have forces of men at work strength- 
ening log booms to hold the thou- 
sands of logs, which will sweep down 
upon them. This rush has already 
begun. S' veral lown.s in the low- 
lands, along the Licking river, are 
leported as in dangt-r of being en- 
tered by water. Much fending in 
the lowlands has already been car- 
ried away. Traffic on railroads and 
Interurban lines running out of this 
city is delayed because of high water. 

Physician Has Narrow EscaiM*. 

Daytun, Ohio, Feb. 15.— While Dr. J. 
Kemper of Gr*-rmantown, Ohio, was 
fording Twin Creek, early this morn- 
ing, answering a call, his and 
buggy were carried down the stream 
and collided with a tree. The doctor 
succeeded in climbing the tree, and re- 
mained there for four hours, until res- 
cued. The horse disentangled itsell 
and reached high ground. Several fam- 
ilies have been driven from their homes 
by high water. 

Leaf Iliver Out of I^nks. 

Hattlesburg, Miss., Feb. l.'>.— Leaf 
river Is over Its banks at this city, and 
a of three feet above the danger 
line is predicted by the weather bureau. 
Residents in the low lying section.s of 
the city are making preparations to 
move. The railroad and the telegraph 
wires are down in every direction, a.s 
a result of yesterday's storm. The Gulf 
& Ship Island road has fifteen freight 
cars derailed in a washout, twelve 
miles north of here. 

."^mall daughter of Isaac Holloway was 
killed, and it is reported that a man 
and a woman and two children also 
were killed.

that the loss may reach several hun- 
dred thousand dollars. The towns of 
Soso and Service were partly wrecked 
by the same tornado and It is reported, 
that another .small town, Epps, was 
badly damaged. 

Owing to s woolen streams, washed 
out bridges, and fallen wires, few 
definite reports have come from these 
places. At Service It is known that a 

Meridan, Miss., Feb. 15. — Three small 
Missiis.sippi towns were practically de- 
molished by a tornado yesterday. Re- 
ports of the number killed range from 
six to ten wii.i the smaller number 
probably correct. MossvlUe, Service and 
.Solo are tne towns destroyed. They 
are all in Jones county and are all very 
small, being merely a handful of scat- 
tered dwellings. The tornado struck 
them about noon and in most instances 
is reported to have carried the build- 
ings In Its path completely off the lots 
on which they stood. Nearby fields 
were covered with wreckage and the 
branches of trees were littered with 
small household articles. L. S. Norri- 
.son, a resident of Mossville, who cime 
here after the storm, said that he wa.s 
compelled to grasp a wire fence to 
keep from being blown away. He said 
the dead at Mo.ssville are Alec Wind- 
ham and wife, negroes. Near tha 
town, ho said, four while persons had 
been killed, a man and wife and their 
two children, whose names ho did not 
learn. The .seriouHiy injured at Moss- 
ville are J. W. Frobin, Mr. and Mrs. 
William Campbell, and Minnie Camp- 
bell, near Service one child of Ike Hol- 
loway is reported dead and also an un- 
known negro. 

No report.s of fatalities have come 
from Solo. The tornado was acom- 
panied by a torrent of rain, which 
caused a sudden rise of the creeks and 
washed away several bridges. Roads 
have become impas.sable in the totnado 
district and telegraph and telephond 
wires were nrji working night. 
_Four Dead at Tyler, Tex. 

Tyler, Tex., Feb. 15. — Tyler was 
swept by th<' most dl.sastrous tornado 
in its history yesterday morning about 
4 o'clock. Coming up from the sout-h- 
west, the ."torm swept over the main 
residence section of the city, leaving 
a trail of death and destruction. 

The known dead in Tyler number 
four, C. A. Franci.s, agent Dallas N<*w9, 
wife and child, about 1 year, and an 
old negro named Mose Lee, aged .SO. 

Francis was about 2S years old. His 
body was found 100 yards from his 
wrecked home and the body of his 
child was found in the .street. Mrs. 
Francis was found in the wreckage In 
the building. 

Erwin Franklin, Mrs. Franklin and 
four children were .seriously injured. 
One of the children is expected to die. 
They were caught 4n the wreckage of 
their home. Twelve buildings were

nado swept over everything clean for 
a distance of five mile.s around. Tha 
tornado tore a path througn Tyler 100 
feet wide. Buildings and all electric 
poles were swept by the storm, while 
great damage was done In other parts 
of the town.

at Last. 

"For several years past my wife has 
been troubled with a most persistent 
and disagreeable cough, which invari- 
ably extended over a perlixl of .several 
Weeks and caused her many sleepless 
nights, " writes Will J. Hayner, editor 
of the Burley, Colo.. Bulletin. "Vari- 
ous remedies were tried each year, with 
no beneficial results. In November last 
the cough again put in an appearance, 
and my wife, acting on the suggestion 
of a friend, purchased a bottle of 
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. The re- 
sult was indee(l marvelous. After three 
doses the cough entirely disappeared, 
and has not manifested Itself since." 
This remedy is for sale by all drug-

board of Itasca meets. March 14, the 
plans for redislricting the county along 
lines proposed by the county auditor, 
in order to make a more equable dis- 
tribution of the offices of county com- 
missioner, some of the nior>e populous 
range communities, notably Colerains 
and Na^hwauk, will be heard from if 
they are not each given at least one 
out of the five commissioners. Tiie sub- 
ject is being freely discussed all over 
the county, and especially in the two 
I-laces named. Culeraine and Bovey 
will insist the redistricting be effected 
In such a way that one of places 
secure one of the commissioners, while 
Xashwauk will make a similar claim. 
While politics enters more or less into 
the discu.s.slon of the subject, there is 
also a feeling that equity should also 
be considered.

On Ore Cars Being Built 
—Other Eveleth Min- 
ing Notes. 

Eveltth, Minn., Feb. 15.-(Special to The 
Herald.)— At the Fayal Machine shops, 
work is progre.ssing rapidly to completion 
on the underground ore cars, that are 
being built for the Fayal and Gilbert 
mines. The day shifts are working as 
heretofore, and no effort is being made 
at present to take on an additional night 

It Is very possible that in the imme- 
diate future, the one steam shovel, that 
is being worked in the Fayal pit, may be 
taken oft for repairs. All the engines 
that work In the pit are In need of over- 
hauling and the officials consider this an 
opportune time to make repairs. In ca-se 
such action Is taken the engine and shov- 
el crews will doubtless be put to work In 
the machine shops, as has happened be- 
fore, this winter. 

The work of retlmbering the No. 1 
Spruce shaft has been completed and 
underground mining Is going on. At tne 
other Spruce- Adajns shaft no efforts are 
being made to incieas* the force. 

The Mohawk mine, a small mine, situ- 
ated between the Gilbert and the McKin- 
ley, has closed down indefinitely. The 
sup«-rlntendent expects to take charge of 
large stripping operations in the vicinity 
of Na.«hwauk. 

No large stripping contracts have been 
announced as yet around Eveleth.

Recently Made at the Embarrass 
Dam by the Longyear Drills. 

Blwablk, Minn., Feb. 15.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— The big ore find made at 
the Embarrass dam by Longyear drills 
Is to be developed in the near future. 

The announcement is made that at the preliminary work will be done 
during the summer, and tliat work on 
the shaft will be started. 

This was the big find of the past 
year, and by some It is predicted that 
here at some time In the future will 
be located the biggest underground 
mine on the Mesaba range. 

While the development work will, it 
is claimed, be done by the Longyears 
there is every reason to believe that 
the Steel corporation will be the untl- 
mate operators. 

It is believed that the quicksand 
formation here is similar to that at the 
Bangor, and that the difficulty can be 
o •ercotne without going to too great 

From an Inside source It Is learned 
that the St. Clair drills, which have 
been working west of Blwablk and 
which completed their task with the 
end of last week, really made some 
good strikes. It was given out offi- 
cially that the best find made was n 
twenty-five-foot body of ore that was 
not very promising. The claim Is that 
this assertion was made with an ulte- 
rior motive and that a really fine body 
of ore was unearthed. The correctness 
of this claim Is Important to Blwablk, 
as this mine would be practically In 

e village limits. The alleged new 

hd, the ore of which Is said to be 
similar to that from the Blwabik, Is 
controlled by Duluth parties. Imme- 
diate development of this property la 
not expected. 


Costs Xotlilng: rto Try. 

Nearly everybody kiipws that char- 
coal Is the safest and mtist efficient dis- 
infectant and purifier in hature, but few 
lealize its value when taken into the 
human system for the same cleansing 

Charcoal is a remefy tHAt the more you 
take of It the better; it Is not a drug at 
all, but simply abaofbsl the gases and 
impurities always pr«eht in the stomach 
and intestines and carries them out of 
the system. 

Charcoal sweetens the breath after 
.smoking, drinking ot aft,ar eating onions 
and other odorous vlgetsBjles. 

Charcoal effectually clears and Im- 
proves the complexion, it whitens the 
teeth and further acts as a natural and 
eminently eafe cathartic. 

It absorbs the injurious gases wh!ch 
collect in the stomach and bowels; It dis- 
infects the mouth and throat from the 
poison of catarrh. 

All druggists sell charcoal In one form 
or another, but probably the best char- 
coal and the most for the money Is In 
Stuart's Chaj-coal Lozenges; they are 
composed of the finest powdered Willow 
charcoal, and other harmless antiseptics 
in tablet form or rather In the form of 
large pleasant tasting lozenges, the char- 
coal being mixed with honey. 

The daily use of these lozenges will 
soon tell in a much Improved condition 
of the general health, better complexion, 
sweeter biea*h and purer blood, and the 
beauty of it is, that no possible harm 
can result from their continued use, but, 
on the contrary, great benefit. 

A Buffalo physician, In speaking of the 
benefits of charcoal, says: "I advise 
Stuarfs Charcoal Lozenges to all patients 
suffering from gas In stomach and bowels, 
and to clear the complexion and purify 
tlie breath, mouth and throat; I also be- 
lieve the liver is greatly benefited by the 
daily of them; they cost but twenty- 
five cents a box at drug stores, and al- 
though in some sense a patent prepar- 
ation, yet I believe I get more and bet- 
ter charcoal in Stuart's Charcoal Loz- 
enges than In any of the ordinary char- 
coal tablets."

Mix It Yourself as It 
Cleans the Blood of Im- 
purities and Waste. 

A leading health journal, in answer- 
ing the qutstion, "What Is the best 
prescription to clean and purify the 
blood," prints in a recent issue ^he 
following: Fluid Extract of Dande- 
lion one-half ounce. Compound K^r- 
gon one ounce, Compound Syrup Sar- 
saparllla three ounces. Shake well and 
use in teaspoonful doses after each 
meal and at bedtime. 

It cleans the blood of all Impurities 
and nourishes the blood. In just a few 
days the skin begins to clear of sores, 
bolls and pimples. It puts vigor and 
energy into run-down, debilitated men 
and women. For many years Sarsa- 
parilla alone has been considered a 
good blood medicine. But whil© It 
built up and made new blood, the im- 
purities remained within and the good 
accomplished was only temporary. 
Sarsaparilla. however, when used li> 
combination with Compound Kargott 
and Extract I>andeilon works wonders. 
This combination puts the kidneys to 
work to filter and sift out the waste 
matter, uric acid and other impurities 
that cause disease. It makes new blood 
and relieves rheumatism and lame 
back and bladder troubles. 

This prescription is better than the 
usual patent medicines, which are in 
the most part alcoholic c onr<>cti<»!is. 
The ingredients cost but little and are 
easily mixed at home. Kveiy man and 
woman here should make some up and 
try it If they feel their system requires 
a good blood medicine and tonic.

We have just published a work en- 
titled "The American Government," 
edited by H. C. Gauss, Esci. Mr. Gauss 
is a trained Journalist at present oc- 
cupying the responsible position of 
Private Secretary to Attorney General 

This book not only gives a list of 
all offices of sufflclejit Importance to be 
filled by Presidential appointment and 
-subject to confirmation by the Senate, 
but a complete statement of the powers 
and duties pertaining to each office and 
the salary attached thereto. How many 
Americans are there who could tell pre- 
cisely what the powers and responsi- 
bilities of the United States District 
Attorney or the Collector of the Port 
are, and the extent of power vested in 
the hands of Bank Examiners and the 
Comptroller -of the Currency, and to 
what work of reference could they turn 
for full information upon these sub- 

This book contains Information upon 
points of law, procedure and custom 
not known to many of even the best 
informed citizens. Not many know that 
the terms of the Postmaster General 
and the Comptroller of the Currency 
extend a month beyond the term of the 
President who appointed them, and that 
the Postmaster General, unlike other 
Cabinet officers, can be removed by the 
President only with the consent of the 
Senate. Few know that United States 
Senators and Representatives have a 
right to select, subject to the passing 
of examinations, cadets in the Naval 
Academy, but have no such right with 
reference to tho Military Academy for 
which their selections are merely ad- 
visory, the President having the sole 
power of apnointnient. These and many 
hundreds of other facts as little famil- 
iar are brought out In this useful vol- 

What American traveling abroad or 
contemplating going abroad but would 
gladly know the duties and powers of 
the American Ambassador and Minister, 
the Consul General and the American 
Consul; what their duties are not only 
to the Government they represent, but 
to American citizens who visit the 
countries to which they are acoredlted 
as well. 

The book makes a volume of nine 
hundred pages, bound in half morocco, 
and the price is $.1. It Is a book of ref- 
erence for American citizens and for 
foreigners who desire full and authen- 
tic information as to the organization 
of the United States Government.

to renounce all intentions of being 
a candidate, this correspondence hiis 
made him give the matter a second 
thought and if it does not make him 
change his mind, it has at least 
delayed the announcement. But it 
is said on good authority that he will 
make a statement of his position

While many are urging him to be 
a presidential candidate, others are 
trying to get him upon the lecture 
platform, and he has already a 
number of Haltering offers. He has 
turned down muny offers for lim- 
ited engagements during his term 
as governor, some offering him as 
higli as three or four thousand dol- 
lars for one evening. Other offers 
have been made which will bring 
him $15,000 or more a year, it is 
said. Governor Johnson has de- 

clined to follow the example of 
many other public men who have 
gone on lecturing tours during their 
term of office, but if he decid<s not 
to be a candidate for the presidency, 
he will probably accept one of the 
offers, to begin when his term is

Tl is rer-orted here that Judge M. A. 
Spooner of Remidji will resign from 
the bench of the Eightt-enth district, 
and, altliough this is only a rumor, 
several candidates arc in the field. The 
resignation is expected about Feb. 2o. 
and the govsrnor will then appoint his 
successor. A. L. Thwing of Grand 
Rapids is one of the candidates, and 
.^nalor Dan Gunn has been in St. 
Paul apparently for the purpose of 
helping his candidacy. Graham Tor- 
rance, a son of Ell Torrance, of Mlnne- 
yiKjlis, is also talked of, but the gossip 
here is that C. \V. Stant<»n of Interna- 
tional Falls has the call. He Is a 
Democratic attorney, county attorney 
of the new county of Koochiching and 
a close personal friend of Goveimor 
Johnson. It has been argued against 
him that International Falls is tcx) re- 
mote to be a convenient residence for 
the Judge, but it has also been said that 
if he is appointed, he might be per- 
suaded to move to either Bemidji or 

Grand Rapids.

St. Paul is listening to the rumblings 
of an approaching municipal storm. 
Both parties have lively scraps •'on 
their hands, and there will be a merry 
time before the primaries on March 17, 
as well as after. The Republicans were 
having a joyous time for a while over 
the Democratic discord. First. Dan 
Lawler liled, and it was given out that 
he was going it free from the support 
of the 'gang" which now "rules the 
administration." Next, it w^as given 
out that the gang had made peace with 
Lawler and thrown down Mayor Smith, 
and that Smith and his friends would 
support Douls Nash, who had also filed 
for the Democratic nomination. This 
looked good to the Republicans, for 
their leaders had picked Ix)uis Hoff- 
mann, and they did not think anyone 
would contest the nomination with 

him. . . 

But Hoffmann did not satisfy the 
Republicans outside the would-be lead- 
ers, and so they induced Joseph McKlb- 
bln, the jobber, to file, and he just 
missed filing ahead of Hoffffmann, and 
thus becoming "the" Republican can- 
didate and Hoftmann the butter-in, 
which was just what Hoffmann's 
friends were trying to guard against. 
Now the St. Paul Dispatch is making 
a mighty effort to nominate McKibbin, 
while the Pioneer Press is aiding Hoff- 
mann. Both are giving considerjfble 
space to the Republican fight, and as a 
re«ult the Democratic contest, so much 
talked of up to ten days ago, has been 
about forgotten. While th? Republi- 
cans had only one candidate, they 
thought they would repeat the Duluth 
affair, but McKibbin's enti-y changed 
the situation entirely and makes the 
election of another Democratic mayor 

a probability.

Dunn's announcement that he would 
not be a candidate for governor as 
long as Jacobson Is in the race has 
been the talk of the state politicians 
this week. It looks now as if the Re- 
publicans were going to have their 
fight of 1904 all over again, and they 
are in a sorry plight. Attorney Gen- 
eral Young has brought upon him the 
enmity of all the other aspirants by 
his early announcement. They are dig- 

ging up his senate record and looking 
up other mistakes he has made. Then 
Jacobson is not a niuch stronger man. 
Honest, no doubt, so that no fault can 
be found with him on that score; still 
he has enemies by the score. Hla 
.speeches on the stump two years ago 
did not win him any friends but 
rather the contrary, for It led many to 
think that he was not In all respects 
the dignified and cool-headed person 
that they ought to have for governor. 
Eberhart is said to be willing, but 
people will not forget his committee 
appointments in the senate last year. 
P. E. Hanson of Meeker and William 
E. Lee of Todd are talked of, but that 
would only stir up a scrap in the Sixth 
district and mix things up the worse. 
1-leally the Republicans, without a 
candidate, without an organization and 
without the much-talked of harmony, 
are not In a very good position to win 
back their hold upon the state. 

• • * 

The Democrats, on the other hand, 
have a half dozen men with whom no 
fault can be found, able men, good 
speakers, men with unimpeachable 
records, any one fif whom would find 
a hopeful Democracy back of him. 
The Democrats liave a solid organiza- 
tion and that means much In helping 

a candidate for the nomination. 

• * • 

Jacobson was In St. Paul yesterday 
and he said there was no doubt that 
he would be a candidate. He had 
been looking ov<r the slate, he said, 
although he added that "I have not 
been traveling around a.« much as you 
fellows think," but he had assurances 
of support which 'gave liim enough 
confidence to enter the race. He would 
not. however, he said, issue any for- 
mal statement for a while.

list of the nations In living composers 
of rternation U fcur.e. Then ilierc is 
Richard Strauss of "Salome" fame or 
notoriety, just as you care to look at 
It. In these men we undoubtedly have 
the six most famous living compo.sers. 
Among these of lesser fame, but m<ire 
or less widely known, are Reginald De 
Koven. George W. Chadwick and Edgar 
Slillman Kelly, Americans all. the last 
named being located in Berlin, whore 
he is looked upon as a celebrity. 

Italy's three all had the traditional 
hard time of it before fickle fame smil- 
ed on them and led them to walk along 
the paths of Easy street. All are under 
50. Mascagnl is the youngest, being 
only 42. Each of his compatriots is 
seven years older. Puccini is the only 
one who comes of a musical family; 
there were four generations of musical 
Pucclnis in a liUf- before him. All three, 
however, early In boyhood displayed a 
strong liking for music, and each has

way to Port Said, and at the first op- 
portunity took boat for foreign soil. 
He landed eventually In France. But 
before he could get aboard ship — he 
was penniless when he readied Port 
Said— he had to raise the necessary 
passage money by giving a concert. All 
the time he was playing ho was In mor- 
tal terror lest some Tommy Atkin-^ 
should swagger in and arrest him. Tho 
concert netted him between five and 
six hundred francs. 
About the time that Leoncavallo 

reached Paris he made the discovery 
that he was again tlat as to pocketbook. 
The tirst work that offered itself was 
seized quickly and so Leoncavallo be- 
came an accompanist at a cafe. In the 
course of time he filled similar posi- 
tions In other cafes. Then he began to 
teach singing, and, a little later, to 
work up artists in tlielr repertoires. 

In the of his struggle to 
make a living by doing such odd 
musical jobs he wrote a poem called 
"Aledlcl." Fortunately for his fu- 
ture, he got an opportunity to read 
ills lines to Ma.ssenet. who advised 
him to go to Milan and read thorn 
to Ricord. That is how Leoncavallo 
came to pawn the furniture of his 
tlat — that he might have enough 
money to get to Milan and before

cafe player to write music for the 
poem, the pay to be 20 francs a 
month for twelve months. This

the name of Leoncavallo was being 
coupled with that of Mascagni. 
Leoncavallo was 34 when Italy 
learned of nis existence. Mascagnl 
was 2fj. 

There are many persons in Ger- 
many who don't think any too well 
of Leoncavallo. This is because Em- 
peror William, after hearing "Medici" 
decided that Its composer was the 
man best fitted to write for him an 
opera with Roland as the theme. 
The opera called "Roland" was com- 
posed by Leoncavallo after long and 
arduous work. When produced It 
pleased the emperor immensely, but 
the German critics and newspapers 
"roasted" unmercifully both the work 
and the composer, because the war 
lord had dared to select an Italian 
instead of a German to write a pet 
opera for him. Outside of Berlin, 
Leoncavullo and his works are pretty 
highly thought of the musical world

He waited In vain for three years,

again in order to keep from starv- 
ing. Meantime, too, Mascagni sprang 
into instant popular favor with his 
"Cavallerla Rusticana." As Mas- 
cagnl's fame Increased, Leoncavallo 
got bluer and bluer. Then one 

day he decided not to wait any 
longer for the producthm of "Medi- 
ci." but to out loose fom Ricordi 
and try to write something that 
would make him famous also. That 
was how he came to compose "II

had not the means to live in ordi-

During the three years that he was 
a conservatoire student his food con- 
sisted largely of coffee, milk aVid 
bread. He, his brother Michael and 
a friend, all lived together in a 
top floor hall bedroom. Sometimes, 
when bread an<l milk palled on 
them, they would feast on an ome- 
let of two eggs. Once they gave a 
little dinner party of four, and then 
— rare treat — they served a herring. 

Puccini's landlord ran a restau- 
rant in connection with the board- 
ing house, and lie naturally forbade 
cooking In the rooms. To circum- 
vent the crusty old fellow by drown- 
ing the noLses of cooking things, 
Puccini was wont to play enthusi- 
astically on the piano while his 
brother played chef. On one oc- 
ca.-ilon. when the three roommates 
got hold of a live chicken, Puccini 
outdid himself at the Instrument. 
Even the brother, who killed the 
fowl, declared himself unable to 
hear Its dying squacks for the 
racket of the piano.

When the government guaranteed 
Puccini's expenses for a year at the 
Milan conservatoi-y Puccini at first 
failed to pass the entrance tests. In 
other words, he lived up to his school- 
boy reputation. But this time failure 
grated on him, and he went hard to 
work. At the next trial he was suc- 
cessful. Once In the conservatory he 
worked indofatlgably, but his music 

was wretchedly written on scrap>s of 
paper, and for this reason his teachers 
were almost p rsuaded not to read his 
graduating corfipo.sition. Only their 
fondness for Puccini at last led them 
Lo sit down in an attempt to decipher 
the notes. They had not been at the 
task many minutes before they di.scov- 
ered that they had before them an un- 
usual composition. Puccjnl had called 
his work "Caprlccio Sinfunica." When 
It was played at one of the conserva- 
tory concerts its composer was en- 
thusiastlcaUy 'nailed as a genius. 

A subsequent concert performance 
led to Puccini's introduction to Fon- 
tana, the librettist, then a beginner 
like himself. Together they wrote a 
short opera for a compTetitlon. They 
lost, but, nothing discouraged, they S3t 
to work on another opera, which be- 
came Puccini's first sustained effort, 
"La Villi." For the time and labor 
Puccini put In on the score he received 
the munificent sum of $80, and no 
sooner was It handed to him than he 
was compelled to part with all of it

latter opened the mall, and then hold 
for the board money due. 

Puccini has made so much out of 
his operas that ho now has three coun- 
try seats, a motorboat, bearing the 
name "Madarha Butterfly," an auto- 
mobile or two, land other luxuries of 
the rich. Ona evening while he, his 
wife and son. nfiw 20 years old, were 
out for a spin in their auto, the chauf- 
feur drove It over a thirty-foot em- 
bankment and Puccini's leg was frac- 
tured. Eight* Tnonths passed before 
the leg healed sufficiently to permit its 
owner to go to Paris for special treat- 
ment. It was while he was conva- 
lescing that he wrote the greater part 
of "Madama Bufterfly." 

This Is probably the favorite Puc- 
cini opera in this country. On a trip 
to London the compo.ser witnessed the 
play of the same name, and though 
he did not understand a word of what 
was said he nevertheless then and 
there decided to write an opera on the 
same theme. He secured the neces- 
sary permission, obtained "local color" 
from the wife of the Japanese minister 
to Italy, and finished the task after 
two years of restless work. When tlie 
opera had its Initial production at La 
Scala. in Milan, It was greeted, ac- 
cording to one account, with "whist- 
ling, shrilling on keys, grunting, 
roaring, bellowing and laughing." 
Puccini at once withdrew it, but not 
his faith in it. A few months later he 
had it produced at Bruscla. where Its 
success was pronounced; Since then 
it has triumphed everywhere In Eu- 
rope and become a prime favorite

hence his trio of country seats, where 
he entertains his friends on a lavish 
.scale. His days are pretty fully taken 
up by pleasure; most of his composing 
he does at night. While at work he Is 
the embodiment of 
Mnscafnii's Leap to Fame. 

What music-loving American has 
not heard humnaed snatches of the In- 
termezzo from "Cavallerla Rustica- 
na?" Of Pletro Mascagnl, its com- 
poser, it can truly be .said that up to 
the night the opera was produced for 
the first time he was obscure and un- 
known. The next morning he was fa- 

There are stories of men started on 
the road to fortune by reading "want 
ads" and going after the opportunities 
named therein. Muscagnl's case Is 
somewhat simihtr. While he was .still 
the director of a band In a small 
Italian town, aud as such receiving a 
salary of $20: a month, he came across 
a copy of r a 3tf ilan newspaper and 
chanced to read therein the aJi- 

Is something of 
more enthusias- 
the living com- 
expert with the 
enthralls him; 

nouncemont that the paper would pay 
$G00 to the per.son submitting to it, 
within a certain time, the beat one-act 

All the while he had been leading 
the band. Mascagnl had been studying 
music and composing. Tlioughts of 
having $600 all his own fired him to 
enter the contest, especially as he was 
then having a harder time of it financi- 
ally than ever before; and he had 
been shy of money from his youth up. 
He succeeded in getting two friends to 
adapt a novel for the libretto, and in 
the eight months that ensued he wrote 
"Cavallerla Rusticana." His joy when 
he received word that he had won thb 
prize can easily be Imagined. 

Mascagnl traveled down to Rome to 
be present at the opera's production. 
The public, the critics, everybody, went 
wild over It. Mascagni was hailed as a 
genius. His managers rushed to con- 
gratulate him. 

"Thank God," he exclaimed fervent- 
ly, as they poured out their words of 
praise, "now- I shall be able to buy my 
wife a new dress!" As .soon as he could 
break away to a telegraph office he 
sent her this message: "Come, bring 
the children, that I may know I am 
tiie same man." 

Mascagni's love for his family has 
been what might be termed the hobi:>y 
of his life. When he composes he likes 
to have a gay time with them. He 
has a habit of naming- each child aJid 
his wile for a character in the opera 
under composition. 

Ma.scagni's wife was a member of an 
op'Ta company; he met her after he 
left the Milan Conservatory and while 
he was traveling about the country as 
conductor for an opera company. It 
was at this time that he gained his 
practical knowledge of the stage, which 
has sto(Kl him in such good stead 
since ht> became a writer of operas. 
After giving up his place as conductor, 
Masc^igni settled down as leader of the 
aforementioned band. He had been 
married meanwhile. 

The oomposea-'a father was a baker 
in Leghorn., where Pletro was born. 
The father wanted to make a lawyer 
of him, but when he saw that the 
youngster's head was full of music, he 
let him have his way, taking him out 
of the common sch(j<jl for the purpose. 
When he w-as 16, Mascagni had prog- 
ressed so far as to take a prize at a 
Milan exposition for an "Ave Maria." 
Then an uncle decided to look after the 
boy's musical education, but before ho 
could do much he died, and Pletro re- 
turned home. About this time he com- 
posed a cantata, which attracted the 
attention of a rich nobleman, who 
placed Pietr<-i in the Milan Conserva- 
tory. Of course the youngster was duly 
grateful, btit his restless temperament 
got in Us wxirk, and it was not long 
before Mascagnl was waving a baton 
here and there over Italy for a travel- 
ing opera company.

• No, the "Salome " Strauss is not the 
waltz king Strauss, though a great 
many persons who should have known 
belter so greeted the former when he 
was in this country. Strauss took the 
confusion good naturedly, once going 
.so far as to let a newspaper reporter

Strauss's father was a born player 
and the son began his study of music 
and the A B Cs simultaneously. At a 
time when most l^oys are occupied in 
wrestling mentally with compound 
fractions young Richard Strauss was 
composing creditably and when he was 
only seventeen he produced his first 
symphony. Since then his whole life 
has been devoted to music. He, like 
Leoncavallo, at one stage of his career 
found it necessary for his financial 
comfort to give lessons In music. One 
of his pupils, a singer in grand opera, 
became his wife. Mrs. Strauss accom- 
panies her husband everywhere and 
frequently sings at social affairs to his

accompaniment. She Is very charming 
socially, and is much sought after in 
the European musical centers, where 
she is as famous in her way as her 
husband is in his. 

The striking thing physically about 
Strauss is his head, marked by a high 
and protruding round forehead and 
light blue eyes set abnormally far apart. 
His nose has an African broadness, 
which further accentuates him among 
a multitude, and his shock of curly 
hair is more or less wonderful. Though 
of strong physique he is slight in build 
and about five feet seven or eight in 
height. He is 43 years old. 

He probably Is the most restless 
noted composer of today. His nerves 
are on edge not only when lie Is 
composing, but at all times else. For 
instance, when he is in an automobile 
he is forever changing seats, for no 
other reason than that it is impossible 
for him to keep still while the machine 

has settled down to work he will not 
brook interruption. 

Charles Camille Saint-Saens, the 
premier of living French composers, and 
who visited us last year, began taking 
piano lessons from his greataunt when 
he was three years old. At five he was 
composing little waltzes; at seven he 
began to study the piano under a pro- 
fessional teacher and a few weeks later 
he tackled the organ in addition. In 
1846, when he was 11. he made his first 
public appearance in Paris as a child 
prodigy. This and subsequent perform- 
ances on the piano won him unstinted 
praise. Three years later he took sec- 
ond prize for piano playing at the Paris 
Conservatoire; the first prize for organ 
playing was his In ISul. He was six- 
teen and already full of honors. Mean- 
while he had written numerous dif- 
ficult things, a symphony amtmg then. 

Salnt-Saens was nearlng forty before 
he composed any operatic music. When

Member of New York's ''WO/' 

spins more than a mile or two. While 
directing he shows his extreme nerv- 
ousness by working his whole body. 

This habit has led to his being called 
eccentric as a director. He also has 
been dubbed abnormal for this and 
other manifestations of restlessness and 
' also because of his musical style. Ab-

Americans used last year to describe

Unlike a great many "big" men. 

Strauss has not been a bit "swelled up" 
over his success. He Is as simple and 
unaffected as a child; fond of his 
home; a lover of the out of doors, to 
which he escapes at every opportunity; 
and an enthusiastic and expert skat 
player. Like Puccini, he does most of 
his composing at night, and once he 

he produced his first opera. "The 
Young Princess," he had been organist 
at the Church of St. Mary, in Paris, 
for fourteen years. He remained at 
this post until 1877. During this time 
he composed an enormous quantity of 
church music. In accordance with his 
contract all this music has been left 
with the church and will not be pub- 
lished until after his death. It is now 
Inaccessible in the church library.

charmed with the melody of the notes 
that he climbed up several flights of 
stairs to get a sight of the person at 
the piano. Asking and learning the

Farmers Carrying Crusade Against Them Into Dis- 
tricts Belieyed Safe—Three Sections of Boston 
Consolidated Mill Placed in Operation. 

Salt Lake, Utah. Feb. 15.— The farm- 
ers are leaving no stone unturned to 
kill the smelting business in Utah. 
They are already trying to muster up 
a case against the Gartield smelter, 
distance being no hindrance to inclina- 
tion. It is pointed out that unless 
Tooele county is utilized for smelting 

purposes, there is no further room in 
Utah for this industry, for in addi- 
tion to desert fanJ, water is needed 
for smelting purposes, and wht-rever 
there is water there is farming land. 

It is not likely that a smtilting or- 
g^anization will be formed to construct 
a smelter at or near Ogden. It is un- 
derstood that at the meeting recently 
held at C)gden. between ihe L'tah Mine 
Operators" association and the business 
amen of the city, there was a disposition 
apparent on the part of the farming 
element to fight »uch an enterprise. 
One visitor to Ogden stated that to 
build and operate near that city would 
mean the same old fight between the 
amelters and the farming element, and 
If .any move is to be made it must be 
a move in the right direction. 

He pointed out that a mere 2,000 
acres of farming land surrounding 

Murray is considered by the people as 
of mort value to the state than smelt- 
ing plants that treat each year $500,- 
CiCCOOO worth of ores. One farmer, 
within eight or ten miles of the smelt- 
ers, can close them. down. At Bing- 
ham, he states, cases of damages al- 
ready are being considered against the 
Yampa smelter, although the nearest 
ranch is ten miles away. 

Three 250-ton sections of the Boston 
Consolidated's milling plant at Gar- 
lield have be -n placed In commission. 
Sections will be added as rapidly as 
mill crews can be obtained, until the 
entire 3,(X)0-lon plant Is in operation. 
Tho receiving bins at the milling plant, 
which have a capacity of 30,000 tons, 
are more than half tilled, while between 
7;>0 and 1,000 tons are being received 
daily in addition to the 300 tons of 
sulphides being delivered daily to the 
GSarfield smelter of the American com- 
pany. Only one steam shovel has been 
in use at the mine, but another is he- 
ing placed In service this week, and ITiO are being employed in order to 
provide the tonnage required by the 
mill. Boston Consolidated officials say 
that the company will markt^t as much

At Ooldfield, Where Thirty-Eight Leases Are Now 
Working-'Kewanes Reports It Has Uncov- 
ered Seven Feet of $90 Ore. 


Progressing Satisfactorily Witli Usual Finds of New Ore Bodies 

—Shipments Slightly Increased— Ml Five Furnaces at the 

Calumet & Arizona Smelter Now in Full Blast. 

Goldfield. Nev., Feb. 15. — There are 
thirty-eight leases now working at 
Goldfield, though most of them are 
Bhort handed and work is not being 
rushed. Six leases are working on the 
Kanawas, where company exploitation 
recently uncovered seven feet of $90 

The Garrett lease on the Kendall has 
blocked out a large tonnage of $20 
ore, which Is being treated by the 
Kinkhead mill, heretofore reducing 
product of the Red Top. On the At- 
lanta, eleven leases are operating. 
Black Butte has three feet of overage 
$100 ore on Its 200-foot level, and will 
shortly be on the weekly market. 
Seventeen men are at work on the 
Dait^y, the chief aim being extensive 
lateral dtvelopment on the shipping 
reserves on the 400 level. Florence 
Extension expects wltMn another 
month to penetrate shipping ore by its 
drift on the 300. The Goldtield Red 
Hills lease is extending Its shaft from 
the 250 for the 400 level. 

It is possible that the coming few- 
weeks may witness the perfection of 
another great merger of Goldtield 
mines, parties to the transaction being 
the Booth, Columllo Mountain, Oro 
and Kanawas properties, lying astride 
of and bounding on the north the 

northern extremities of the Consoli- 
dated. Details of the possible coali- 
tion, in whose perfection Nixon and 
Wlngrteld would necessary assume a 
leading role, have not yet been worked 

If the Red Top Extension Leasing 
company lease on the Red Top Exten- 
sion Is not In shipping material within 
thirty days from its resumption of ac- 
tivity. It will be because all signs fall 
in mining forecasts. On every hand 
Its neighbors have demonstrated the 
locality and enrichment of the Red 
Top lead, which cannot logically es- 
cape the lease's borders. Its own shaft 
is down 210 feet, but the Initial work 
will be done by a crosscut from the 
station to be cut at about 420 feet on 
the Mohawk-Red Top lease on the ad- 
joining Miss Jessie claim of the Lagu- 
no, owned by the Consolidated. 

The Mohawk-Red Top lease has 
only eight months.<o run, but the Red 
Top Extension lease will not expire 
until eighteen months after Its re- 
sumption of activity. It expects to be 
in profitable ore seventeen months of 
that time, and has arranged for a con- 
tinuance of Its use of the Mohawk- 
Red Top shaft. Milling ore mined will 
be allowed to remain on the Extension 
lease's dump indefinitely, pending 
plans for Its reduction. 

Blsbee, Ariz., Feb. 15.— Owing to the 
blowing-ln of two new furnaces In 
Douglas, one at each of the Copper 
Queen and Calumet & Arizona plants 
the shipments of ore from the district 
have been slightly increased. However 
It is understood that these companies 
will commence handling custom ores 
again, which will supply the two new 

The plan of opening up new ground 
in the various properties is still be- 
ing followed and has resulted In the 
discovery of several valuable and ex- 
tensive bodies of ore. These bodies will 
be blocked out, and when time 
comes that the producers are of the 
opinion that the price warrants a big 
production shipments from the mines 
wil be Increased. 

Thfr new electric car line from 
Warren has been completed into the 
hills and will probably be in operation 
within a few days. The road runs to a 
point very close to the Sacramento and 
Oliver shafts, and will be a great con- 
venience for men going on and coming 
off shift. 

Machinery men made progress with 
the work of placing the equipment In 
the new Copper Queen power house, 
while work on the .Sacramento shaft, 
and underground workings has pro- 
gressed rapidly. 

At the smaller properties" develop- 
ment work has been going on in spite 
of the depression. 

During the week there has been no 
Instances of lncrea,slng the number of 
miners. At the present t-ime the Calu- 
met & Arizona is working fully as 
many men as ever in the history of the 
company, both in the mines and at the 
smelter in Douglas. The Copper Queen 

has not yet got back to the maximum 
force, but some additions have been 
made since the first 6t the year. 

The work of grading for the spur 
track which is to reach the Sacra- 
mento shaft Is progressing with a 
good force of men and teams employ- 
ed. Andy Scott of Douglas, has the 
contract for this work, which was com- 
menced more than a month ago. 

At the Calumet & Arizona smelter, 
the rounding up of the lmpix>vements 
at the power house Is pi-ogresslng 
slowly and dellbterately, since there is 
no occasion to rush. The leading fea- 
ture in this department is the big 850 
horse-power Nordburg, with its 50,000- 
•pound flywheel, which can be put In 
commission within three days. On the 
west side of the smeJter building a 
horizontal steel stack, 150 feet in 
length, has been completed, connecting 
with a vertical stiick of corresponding 
height. The foundatidu rods are In 
place for the vertical stack and con- 
crete work will be commenced on the 
foundation Immediately, This stack Is 
Intended to accommodate the convert- 
ers of the smelter. Ail five furnaces 
are now in full blast. One blower and 
engine has been added as a reserve 
item, and the construction of two ad- 
ditional furnaces Is under contempla- 
tion. The trolleys are up on the new- 
slag system, but K will be some time 
before they are in operation. 

Reports from the Butte & Arizona 
mine are very encouraging. The tun- 
nel which is being driven Into the 
mountain under a great copper out- 
crop. Is in about 2,000 feet and is just 
getting Into the vein under the crop- 
ping, at a depth of about 800 feet. For 
several weeks the miners have been 
finding bunches of copper glance and 

gray copper ore, running high in sil- 
ver, the silver value being about six 
ounces to 1 per cent of copper. Noth- 
ing has yet been found to get excited 
over, as an official of the company 
put it, but the formation Is changing 
and the prospect Is gradually Improv- 
ing. There has been no ces.satlon of 
work during outside financial troubles, 
and the company has been "plugging 
along" steadily and making good prog- 
ress with the work. It has been 
proven that the vein, which was op- 
ened on the surface, goes down and 
that the values are better than on the 

Dr. Rlcketts, general manager of the 
Greene-Cananea company, who was 
here a few days ago, said his company 
Is now employing In the neighborhood 
of 900 men. This force is divided be- 
tween development work in the mines 
and construction work at the smelter. 
The development work done since the 
reduction plant was stopped has 
brought excellent results. Some im- 
portant work is being done at the 
Puertocitos property, one of the mines 
of the Greene Consolidated company, 
but the larger part of the present min- 
ing force is employed In the Cananea- 
Duluth. The construction work in- 
cludes something in almost every de- 
partment. An Improvement in the 
mines is the concreting of 300 feet of 
the tunnel, through which all the ore 
is brought from Vvta No. 9 and from 
the Oversight mine. Ore is brought 
out through this tunnel by electric 
motor pulling ore cars of seven-ton 
capacity. That part of this tunnel now- 
being concreted has given much trou- 
ble In the past, which will now be 
avoided. The narrow gauge railroad

Rumor of Resumption by Amalgamated Mines Lacks 
Good Support—Preparations for an Inde- 
pendent Smelter by the Mine Owners. 

Butte, Mont., Feb. 15.— The stock 
wires from the East carried several 
reports of rumors that the Amalga- 
mated mines in Butte would resume 
operation by May 1. If there is any- 
thing In the rumor the Amalgamated 
officials In Butte know nothing about 
it. John Gillie, general superintendent 
of the company's mines, said that he 
had no information and had no reason 
to believe there was anything in It; 
neither had he any reason to say that 
the mines would not resume witliln 
the next three months, or by the first 
of May. 

Great preparations are being made 
for the meeting of the mine own'ers at 
Helena on Feb. 17, when the Montana 
Mine Owners* association will be per- 
fected. The Butte delegation will leave 
here on a special train. It Is under- 
stood that already more than $100,000 
has been pledged toward a fund for the 
construction of an independent smelter, 
and at the Helena meeting it is ex- 
pected that plans will be completed 
for the organization of a smelter com- 
pany, to the stock of which the mine 
operators and owners will liberally 
subscribe. It Is contemplated to build 
a 200-ton smelter for a starter, and to 
so arrange the plans that other units 
may be added as demand requires. 

The estimated cost is $250,000. 

Greater developments is the promise 
for the future for the Butte & London 
Copper development company. It is 
understood that the president of the 
Venture company of London is on his 
way to Butto to make an examination 
of the property with a view of taking; 
over a controlling Interest. This will 
place a handsome sum of money In the 
Butte & London treasury, and it is 
probable that the shaft will be sunk 
to a depth of at least 1,000 feet. A 
drift Is now being run on a strong lead 
from the south crosscut dn the 1,100- 
foot level, and from the general char- 
acter and high mineralization of the 
ledge matter It is quite probable that 
the next 100 feet In the drift will open 
Into a body of commercial ore. 

That the Amalgamated Copper 
company has great confidence in the 
theory that the big veins of the Butte 
hill extend across the flat. Is shown 
by the fact that It has recenly placed 
an entirely new surface equipment 
on the Greenleaf ground. The shaft 
Is down 1.000 feet, and the assays 
from the drift west have proved so 
good thatt h5 company has decided 
to sink deeper. The Amalgamated 
engineers are confident that an Im- 
mense body of high-grade ore will

Remarkable Story of Sinaloa Mine That Cost $1,000,- 

000 For Development and Is Now 

Offered for Sale. 

Mazatlan, Mex., Feb. 15. — In several 
Sinaloa papers are now appearing ad- 
vertisements announcing that the ma- 
chinery and all other effects of the 
San Fernando Mining company are 
for sale, and asking prospective pur- 
chasers to communicate with Tom T. 
Canfieid, agent for the Waters Pierce 
Oil company in Culiacan. Connected 
■with these advertisements is a rather 
remarkable mining story, concerning, 
as it does, the giving away of mining 
properties that cost $50,000 and on 
■which a total of $1,000,000, gold, has 
been spent. 

The San Fernando Mining com- 
pany was organized by American cap- 
italists about five years ago to take 
over a group of gold properties some 
distance from Culiacan, the Sinaloa 
capital. Col. Llvermore of Boston, 
one of the men chiefly concerned in 
the management of the Calumet & 
Hecla enterprise, was the moving 
spirit In the new proposition. Ex- 
tensive development plans were out- 

lined, costly machinery was purchased, 
high salaried men were employed, and 
the work was pushed ahead with vigor. 
To secure power for mining and mill- 
ing operations a temporary dam was 
built a nearby river and a 
hydroelectric plant installed. No at- 
tempt was made to put in a permanent 
dam on account of the high water 
during the rainy season each year, 
and the temporary dam was renewed 

The engineers employed by Col. 
Llvermore and a.ssoclates prior to the 
purchase of the inines reported that a 
production of 1,000 tons daily was pos- 
sible. Accordingly, the company's 
plans were based on that production. 
After working several years It was de- 
termined that a production of not 
more than 150 tons dally would be 
possible, and that as the ore was low- 
grade the returns would not be suffi- 
cient to continue operations on the 
property at that time and the work 
was then suspended. 

Houghton. Mich.. Feb. 15.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— Michigan mine's possi- 
bilities are broadening as a result of 
the Calico lode's enrichment found to 
the eastward. This lode was the orig- 
inal quest of the Michigan and all of 
its shafts are opened upon It, but with 

development Its principal value- ap- 
peared tributary to Shaft A. the most 
westerly opening. Shaft B, next east, 
depended upon the Branch vein, sub- 
sequently discovered, for its output, 
tilt; Calico lode there offering little en- 
couragement. Therefore in opening 
Shaft C, east of B, principal attention 
was directed to the Branch and the 
eleventh level on it was quite exten- 
sively opened before that level was 
reached on the Calico. When this level 
had been pushed west 450 feet to con- 
nect with the east drift from B, a 
cross-cut was decided upon, to drive 
the necessary 100 feet nortli to explore 
the Calico lode, which had not been 
tested in that territory. The surpris- 
ing result was the disclosure of a lode 
as well charged with copper as any- 
where tributary to Shaft A. Drifting 
upon it has been carried west 160 feet 
with the same favorable conditions. 
Sinking In Shaft CS was resumed as 
soon as the enrichment of the Calico 
lode w^as discovered and the eleventh 
level of the shaft has just been reached. 
There the condition is also noticeable 
and attention will be directed to de- 
veloping It. 

Although the enrichment of the Cali- 
co lode tributary to shaft A Is accom- 
panied by a depletion of the value of 
the Branch vein there, this Is not so 
in the territory tributary to shaft C, 
and therefore the property becomes 
doubly resourceful, because both for- 
mations are found productive in the 
same zone. Shafts B and C are 1.375 
feet apart, and are connected on the 
Branch vein down to the ninth llvel in- 
clusive. The tenth and eleventh will 

be connected soon. Deeper connec- 
tions are remote, as Shaft C will not re- 
sume sinking below the eleventh for 
an indefinite time. The final equipment 
at Shaft C, consisting of two crushers, 
were recently installed, and shipments 
from there have been started. 

Shaft A, which has been bottomed at 
the fourteenth level for several years, 
will be deepened to the sixteenth levl. 
Extensive drifts have been driven on 
th Calico lode there and from these the 
position and rake of the copper shoots 
nave been mapped. The map shows that 
a shoot rakes across the line of the 
shaft below its present depth, and the 
two drifts will be sunk to explore the 
condition. Shaft B will remain for the 

f)resent bottomed at the fourteenth 

Construction on Michigan's stamp mill 
at Keneenaw Bay ia suspended because 
of the break In copper prices, and the 
financial stringency. The mill Is being 
built from the earnings and the present 
prices of copper does not admit of prog- 
ress unless money from another source 
is used. The work is well advanced 
and much of the expensive parts Is on 
the ground. The mill will have one 
steeple compound he'ad. and room for a 
second. In the meanwhile Michigan's 
rock is going to Atlantic's mill. 

Calumet & Hedla began this week to 
put steel columns and trusses under the 
railroad trestles of its stamp mills to 
carry the added load when its standar 1 
guage cars and locomotives begin service 
In the spring. Two heads at a time are 
shut down to admit this alteration. As 
three or four heads are generally Idle for 
overhauling In the twenty-eight head 
mill. It Is possible to overhaul the two 
heads while the trestle alterations are in 
progress, and by manipulating the rock in 
that part of the mill at night no in- 
terruption to regular work results. Three 
locomotives and 150 cars of the new 
type are In the yards. Each car is of 
forty-ton capacity and .weighs sixteen 
tons. They are of timber and were 

specially designed by the A. C. & F. Co.'s 
Detroit works for the Calumet & Hecla. 
They carry Westinghouse air brakt-s, 
met.ll brake beams. Miner draft gear and 
M. C, B. couplers. 

The forty-eight concrete piers for the 
Chilian mills in the Calumet & Hecla re- 
grindhig plant, auxiliary to the stamp 
mill, are finished. Each pier is a hof- 
low octagon sixteen feet high and seven 
feet diameter with fifteen-inch walls. The 
hollow is fWled for tw-elve feet with 
stamp sand and the remainder of the fill- 
ing is a concrete cap. The piers stand in 
two rows and are joined longitudinally 
by concrete ribs which make a con- 
tinuous enclosure. Th's Is filled with 
stamp sand and will be capped with con- 
crete. Each pair of piers is also join- 
ed transversely by a concrete rib In 
wliich is imbedded a steel cable that 
coHitinues embedded around the walls of 
the pair of piers. The structural steel 
building rests upon a concrete founda- 
tion that Is a continuous wall, forming 
an enclosure of the entire Interior. This 
will t>e filled with stamp sand to a level 
that win bury about two-thirds of the 
height of the piers. A concrete capping 
upon it will be the floor of the plant. 
No wood enters into the construction. 
Power will be from eight Induction 
motors, each 250-horse power, driven by 
2,080 volts, connected with line shafting. 
This will furnish probably 100 per cent 
surplus jKJwer, thus providing against 
delay from overhauling and repairing. The 
pulp from the forty-eight Chilians will 
be treated upon 200 Wllfley tables. Sev- 
eral of the motors are on the ground, 
and the grinding and concentrating ma- 
chinery is all being built In the Calumet 
& Hecla foundries and shops. 

It is understood the conglpmerate tail- 
ings of coarse gravel to be treated in the 
regrlnding plant carry ten pounds of 
copi)er per ton. This copper Is so pul- 
verulent that it cannot be recovered by 

Albuquerque. N. M., Feb. 15.— Eugene 
H. Wilson of New York passed through 
here a/^w days ago for HiUsboro, 
where he goes as receiver to take 
charge of the properties of the Sierra 
Consolidated Gold Mining company, 
which was sent into the hands of re- 
ceivers when Former Senator Warner 
Miller of Herkimer, New York, went 
down as a result of financial string 
gency. Mr. Wilson takes a very hope- 
ful view of the affairs of the Sierra 
Consolidated. He says with confidence 
that the properties are sound, that they 
are no^ seriously involved, that they 
will be reopened and beyond a doubt 
will be made to pay. 

"It Is my opinion that the difficulties 
of the Sierra Consolidated will soon be 
straightened out," said Mr. Wilson. 
"I am very familiar with the district, 
having been interested for some years 
In the development of the Ready Pay 
property adjoining the Sierra Consolid- 
ed holdings. Our property is now run- 

ning two Huntington mills full force, 
and Is turning out sixty tons of ore a 

"There can be no question of the 
worth of the Sierra Consolidated prop- 
erties. The old Snake mine has been 
an established producer for many 
years. There was no cause for tho 
receivership for this company, aside 
from the financial depression and the 
inability to get money to meet bond- 
ed indebtness. More than $200,000 has 
been expended In equipping the prop- 
erty and the mills are standing ready 
to run, even the electric light globes 
being In place. Of $150,000 in contracts, 
a little less than $7,000 remains unpaid. 
It wa.^ the inability to get ready money 
to meet a forthcoming bond obligation 
which forced the receivership action. I 
expect to get to w-ork pumping the 
w-aler out of the mine at once, and wo 
hope to begin operations shortly. I 
think there Is no question of the future 
of the property and tlint its troubles 
will shortly be at an end."

Decision to Hold Down Production Means Smaller Working

Ludington Shaft at Chapin Mine to Begin Shipments. 

Colorado Springs, Feb. 15. -The Cripple 
Creek January product readied LC 785 tons 
of ore. worth gross $1,335,820. This record 
surpasses that of any month in the camp's 
history, with the exception of December, 
1900, the banner year, according to the 
governments official rep^)rt. The lncreas>.' 
Is due to the low freight and treatment 
charges on oxidized or low-grade ores 
made by the United States Reduction & 
Refining Company of New York and Colo- 
rado Springs, which has stimulated lessees 
to reopen old and abandoned properties. 
The company treated 17,500 tons of $-'G 
avemg*^ value each, a total of $455,i;00. 
Then the Golden Cycle mill, which start- 
ed the first of the month aftci a protract- 
ed shutdown for rebuilding, treated 2u,300 
tons worth S20.50 each, or $416,150. Tho 
Portland mill treated its regular grist, 
7,500 tons of $21.50 ore, or $lul,250. 

The Isabfilu cyanide mills, with 3,700 
tons worth $« each, followed by the Iron- 
clad, with :V''*^ tons worth $2 each, whll .■ 
other expel inientai plants treated l.O'.'O 
tons worth ?."> each, make a total of 7,300 
tons worth $32,400, or about $4.43 each. 

The smelter grade ore reached 1,185 tons, 
each worth $(55, or $271,020 total. This 
hish average of value and that of $22.50 
for mill ore is somewhat reduced when 

the low grade ore value is taken into 
account. The average value of the entire 
product, $23.52, makc-s a good showing, 
wlien the bulk of the low grade ores To 

The record is a gain over December of 
$1S4,0C0 or 2,374 tons, and over January, 
11KJ7, $253,261. or 1,895 tons. 

The months dividends were: Portland. 
4 cents, or $120,000; Vindicator, 4 cents, or 
$tjO,000; Jerry Johnson, 1 cent, or $25,000, 
and British-American Leasing company,

The important strikes during January 
were made in mines of the Dante, Prince 
Alb<-rt, Limited: National Mlnln, Land .'"c 
Tunnel, Portland, Rigo. Limited ; Sun & 
Stratton's Cripple Creek Mining & De- 
velopment companies. 

The first annual report of the Cripple 
Creek Deep Drainage Tunnel company, 
covering from Aug. 1."), 19C6, to Dpc. 31, 
1S07, shows that $112,5.59 capital stock has 
been issued, while the amount of sub- 
scriptions has reached $2S8,500 out of 1,- 
(tOO.OOO shares capitalization of $1 each. 
Tlie tunnel has b'^en driven 1.289 feet at a 
cost of $33.04 a foot, and the intermediat<> 
shaft sunk 9ti feet at a cost of $2.49 a foot. 
A contract for continuing the bore to 15,- 
:;00 feet has been signed by A. E. Carlton, 
the contractor, and the officers. Work 
may be completed early in 19U. 

While it has been expected that con- 
siderable less ore would be shipped 
from the Lake Superior region this 
year than last season, when the pro- 
duction footed up 42,250,000 tons, the 
reported decision to cut the output 
practically in t'v.-> was hardjy looked 
for except In ultra-conservative quart- 
ers. If the agreement reached is as 
understood in the ore fields, the year's 
shipments w-ill be limited to 25,000,000 
tons. This amount the mines could 
send out without half trying. With Xh^ 
Mesaba alone in position to produce 
prababiy 35,000,000 tons, it will be In- 
teresting to learn just how the 25,000- 
000 tons are to be apportioned among 
the five Iron ranges of the upper lake 
country. Undoubtedly the year's out- 
put will be greater thiiu the limit set 
upon tJie shipments, but the excess will 
be much less than in forfher season.s — 
money is too dear to be tied up In 
stockpiles with the outlook In the Iron 
trade so uncertain. 

The decision to hold down produc- 
tion means much smaller working 
forrces than last season, not only at 
the mines, but on the railroads and ore 
docks and on the lakes. Fcvvcr shafts 
and pits will be In commisTlon, arid 
fewer trains and fewer ships will be 
run. Some thousands of men will be 
affected. There are many mines closed 
down now- that were expected to re- 
sume In the spring, but it .s evident 
that the majority of these will remain 

In Idleness, with the possibility of still 
others being added to the inactive list. 
That wages are to be maintained at the 
present high level was expected, as w-as 
the decision to keep up the prices of 

After nearly three years' time con- 
sumed in sinking the great opening to 
its present depth of 1,525 feet, the "C" 
Ludington shaft, at the Steel corpora- 
tion's big Chapin mine at Iron Moun- 
tain, will send its first ore to the sur- 
face early In the coming summer. This 
shaft Is the greatest on the Menomi- 
nee range, if not In the entire Lake Su- 
perior iron region, the only others now 
going down at Ferdinand Schleslnger's 
Newport mine, both In the Gogebic dis- 
trict. Sunk vertically, as all Menomi- 
nee range shafts are, "C" Ludingt6n 
Is 10 1-3 by 24% feet In Inside dimen- 
sions. It contains four compartments — 
one for cage, two for skips and one for 
piping and ladderway. It is steel head- 
frame, 114 feet high. 

The shaft now sinking at the New- 
port, for the purpose of developing new 
ore deposits, at a depth of 2,000 feet In 
the cast erfd of the mine. Is 8% by 28 
feet In dimensions. It is steel-framed, 
and from collar to ledge Is lined with 
concrete. The shaft will not go Into 
commission until next year. It Is of 
Interest In this connection to note that 
Ferdinand Schleslnger, operator of the 
Newport, once had the Chapin also. 
This was prior to the panic of 1893. 
Employed by him as superintendents 
at the time were two mining men who 
today are pre-eminent in their profes- 

Blsbee, Ariz., Feb. 15.— H. B. Hov- 
land has gone on a visit to the property 
of the Copper Gulf Mining company, of 
which he and Hoval A. Smith, of this 
city, are the controlling owners. This 
property is In the Burro Mountain dis- 
trict, about twelve miles southwest of 
Silver City. Hovland and Smith se- 
cured the nucleus of this property early 
last year, and since then have secured 
adjoining claims, until they now- own 
slump in the money market and the 
consequent disturbance of the vari- 
ous Industries of the country. Includ- 
ing copper mining, Hovland and 
Smith were doing a great deal of 
work on this property. Three shafts 
have been sunk and ore has been en- 
countered in all of them. The prin- 
cipal work, however, has been concen- 
trated in one shaft. This shaft is 
rear one of the lines which divides 
the Copper Gulf from the property of 
the Burro Mountalln company, the 
oldest com^py in the district, and 
the one v.-hTOi has done the greatest 
amount of work up to the present 

time. The main shaft of the Copper 
Gulf company has been sunk to a 
depth of 300 feet, and from this depth 
depth a drift has been run into an ore 
body of importance. During last year 
Hovland and Smith shipped $30,000 
worth of ore from their Burro Moun- 
tain property, but recently not much 
work has been done. 

The Burro Mountain property lies 
east of the property owned by the 
Chemlng Copper company, and on the 
Burro Mountain property a large 
amount of work has been done and 
an ore body has been prospected, 
which Is a marvel, even in the minlnsr 
West. This body of ore, by actual 
measurement, is 800 feet long, 500 
feet wide and 200 feet deep. This 
company has a concentrating milU 
which has been operating for a consid- 
erable time, until the general shut- 
diwn in copper mining last fall. 
■ The Cheming property has also 
teen thoroughly developed, and may 
now be considered to be a valuable 
jnine, having gotten well out of the 
I r rospeot class.

In keeping with its magnitude, "C" 
Ludington is being giiven an equipment 
unrivalled In the iron region. The 
hoisting plant, now- in course of erec- 
tion, is of the first motion design, ana 
was built by the Allie-Chalmers com- 
pany at its Afilwaukee shops. The 
engine is a Corliss duplex reversing, 
and aside from the weight of the 1%- 
inch steel hoisting rope, it is capable 
of lifting a load of eleven tons, of 
which four tons will constitute the 
weight of the two skips. The drum Is 
12 feet In diameter, with 10-foot face. 
The hoisting plant is designed to oper- 
ate to a maximum depth of 3,000 feet, 
or twice the depth of the shaft at 

There Is also being installed at "C" 
Ludington the giant Cornish pumping 
plant formerly In use at "D" Chapin 
shaft, now abandoned. Power for the 
operation of this big engine will bt 
supplied from a steam plant compris- 
ing six horizontal boilers Installed In a 
building adjacent to the engine house. 
Practically all the other machinery at 
the Chapin Is operated by air com-

Two Miles of Third Beach Changed From Prospect 

Ground to Paying Mines Since Last Fall. 

New Finds Weekly. 

Seattle, Wash., Feb. 15.— Notwithstand- 
made regarding the end of the pay on 
made regarding the end of the pa yon 
the first, second and third beaches at 
Nome, strikes continue to be made. Ev- 
ery week sees some new find and since 
fall two miles of the third beach has 
been changed from prospect ground to 
paying mines. The theory Is now ad- 
vanced that with time pay will be located 
for a great distance east, and perhaps 
many miles west of Nome on the ancient 
beach lines. 

Nome mining men In the north and in 
Seattle are Jubilant and money will pour 
in tor machinery to prospect the beaches 
for many miles east and west of that 
city. Most of the pay, however, is east 
of Nome. 

Fairbanks miners say there is every 
rf'ason to believe that the coming season 
will see new life In the Birch Creek dig- 
gings. Many of the miners of the Tan- 
ana have become Interested In the shal- 
low diggings of the north fork of Birch, 
and very few days sees on outfit start 
from Fairbanks for that region. It is 
one of the odd things about the history 
of the interior country that Birch Creek 
at one time the greatest live placer field 
In the world should have been al>andoned 
at the time of the Klondike strike. 

Wages were $10 a day and board, and 
new ground was opening up when the 
phenomenal riches of the Klondike 
caused men who were making money to 
drop their holdings and rush to the new 

Today the miners are beginning to real- 
ize the great extent and regularity of the 
pay on the tributaries of Birch creek. 
Robert Warren, a well known miner of 
Birch, reports having opened up a piece 
of ground at the mouth of McLean creek, 
this season, where for a time he averaged 
$2 an hour, and where the aver;'.;ie l)ar 
diggings worked last summer g-avo $6 a 
day to the shovel. So rich is the dis- 
trict and so eager are the men who have 
prospected there to open up that War- 
ren thinks the great development that 
win take place in the next two years 
win encourage the Tanana Valley rail- 
way to extend its line Into that region 
to supply the thousands of men who w-111 
be w-orklng their own ground. 

The Sulzer mine on Prince of Wales 
Island has begun shipping coj^K-r ore to 
the Tacoma smelter. The mine is owned 
by Congressman William Sulzer of New 
York and is said to be of high class. 
running from 6 per cent to 7 s>er cent to 
the ton. The Sulzer mine has been a 
shipper for some months, the ore liere- 
tofore having gone to British Columbia

Northern Hockey Team 

to Leave Tuesday on 

Trip to Cleveland. 

Only One Game Will be 

Played In Copper 


with the championship of the North- 
west flrmly in their grasp, the mem- 
bers of tho Northern hockey team will 
leave Tut'sday evening for Houghton, 
as the first stopping place In their trip 
to Cleveland, by which they will con- 
clusively settle the championship of 
the West In the Canadian national 

Wednesday night they will play 
Houghton, and there are four other 
games on their schedule, as follows: 
Canadian Soo, Feb. 21; American Soo, 
Feb. 22; Detroit. Feb. 24; and Cleve- 
land, Feb. 26. They expect to be Ijack 
in DuiuLh Feb. 28. giving them ten 
days for the entire trip. 

The regular line-up will be taken 
along. wiUi Cargill and McKenzie as 
spare men. The regular men are Ray 
Fenion. goal; Eld Furnl. point; Charles 
Horn. cover-point; Frank Winter, 
rover; Koy Deetz» center; John Steln- 
l>ack. right wing; Earl Cummings, left 

Nothing has been heard from Calumet 
in rega.rd to the game for Monday 
night, 80 it has been called oft, and 
the departure postpone«l for two days. 
Houghton will, therefore, be the only 
CopjK?r country team to be met, and 
the LXuluth boys are anxious lo repeat 
their performance of Tuesday night. 
when Uiey defeated Houghton here by 
a score of 5 to 3. The game Tuesday 
night was played under unfavorable 
conditions for both teams, and was not 
a fair comparison of them. However. 
In Houghton the teams will meet in 
the Amphidronne. and if the ice is good, 
the Hockey enthusiasts will see a 
whirlwind game. Tlie Duluth boys be- 
lieve thai instead of handicapping 
them, the big rink will give them a 
belter opportunity to show their worth, 
and they will show Just as much im- 
provement over th<=;ir form of Tuesday 
night as will Houghton. 

The defeat of the Houghton team 
by the Northerns wa.s a surprise to 
Copper country people. The Hough- 
ton boys have excused their defeat 
on the grounds that they were handi- 
capped by the conditions, and it will 
be up to them to make good their 
claims next Wednesday night. Tlie 
Duluth boys expect to have the big- 
gest cr-iwd of the trip at Houghton 
and lo.ik forward to a great game 
to op'-n the schedule. 

At tlie Soo, the two strong semi- 
professional teams will be met. The 
American Soo team has "Chief" 
Jones in goal. Pud Hamilton, Herb 
Melnke and other old International 
league stars in the line-up. v.hile the 
Canadians have a gang of stars, 
■who have been playing together for 
years. The Soo teams are heavier 
and faster than ^Uiose of the Cop- 
per country and will probably give 
the Northerns the .^tiftest contests of 
the trip. 

Hockey is pretty firmly established 
in Detroit, and one of the strong 
teams of the city will take on the 
Duluth boys. At Cleveland, a semi- 
professional team, which has success- 
fully competed against the crack 
teams of Pittsburg, will be the op- 
posing seven. 

The trip of the Northerns is made 
possibl«« by liberal subscriptions on 
the part of Duluth businessmen, 
who are anxious to see the boys 
make good and. at the same time, 
give Duluth a little advertising. The 
team will start from Duluth with 
funds enough to pay railroad fares 
all the way, and th«?y expect no 
trouble in financing the venture.

The higher the stand, 
the farther the fall. 
A J< »ng fellow from 

Ironwjood, Mich., made 
the descent of the 
Chester hill slid* six 
times in the national 
ski tournament Sunday, didn't make 
over eighty-tive feet, and rolled to 
the bottom of the hill every time. 
But the people don't notice it. Ule 
Feiring couldn't do better than 
ninety-live feet and stand up. and 
an idol was shattered. 

Die was the one best bet before the 
tournament started. He was the sure 
enough bird of the air, wlio was going 
to crack every American ski record 
that was ever set and jump up into 
a little niche beside Leif Berg, the 
Norwegian wonder. Before the tourna- 
ment, Ole's friends would havQ fought 
at the drop of the hat, had anyone 
suggested that their hero was to be 
beaten out by a field of good, bad and 
Indifferent riders. They were backing 
Ole to the limit. 

Their disappointment when the great 
Ole didn't even get inside of the money, 
which was divided among fifteen riders, 
isn't hard to imagine. Ole was very 
much of a frayed remnant. He was a 
very dim suggestion of a spark from a 
comet's tail in a sky of shining lights. 
He tumbled like a novice and jumped 
.like a twentieth rater. 

But Feiring will have his revenge. 
Tomorrow, he says he'll be back into 
his own form. His skis will be dif- 
ferent, the slide will be different and 
he'll show some of the diijappointed 
ones that there's nothing on the skis 

in this whole nation can beat him 
If Ole's tlie goods, he'll come up smil- 
ing tomorrow. If he's a fraj.-ed rem- 
nant, he'll have to postpone his second 
flight to glory. Ureat will be tlie Joy 
tomorrow, if he comes back into his 
own. And joy is so good as a reac- 
tion from grief. 

• * • 
The "wrestling trust," a gang said 
to be responsible for the pulling of 
fake matches on the dear public of 
Chicago and the exclusion of real 
wresti-^rs, that dubs may gather in the 
coin, had a fine game worked on them 
by Al Ackerman and Charlie Olson 
the other night. It didn't do the 
wrestling game any g<x>d, but Ackerman 
and Olson are about $1,000 to the good 
and they showed up at least one of 
the false alarms the promoters are 
ringing in on the somnolent public. 

In the preliminary 'o the Beall- 
Gotch match, the promoters put Paul 
Geidel against "Bert Hudson of St. 
Louis." They bet their money on 
Hud.son against the dub. Fully $1,000 
was waged, it is said, and the backers 
of the Chicago boy had visions of easy 
pickings from the St. Louis youngster. 

The '"youngster" wa.s Ackerman, 
the cleverest 145-pound wrestler In 
the country. He spun Geldel around 
a few times and then sat on him. 
Geidel didn't know whether it was a cyclone or a plain Hoosier 
mule. At any rate, he went down 
and out. and the Windy City sports 
didn't discover their mistake until 
the money had been paid over. Now 
they're letting up a yell. 

The promoters In Chicago, with 
the aid of a few mercenary wrestlers, 
are killing the game for fair. It's 
the same old trick that past history 
has been throwing on its pages for 
years and years. The public will 
fall for it for a time, but when it 
does wake up. wrestlers and pro- 
moters alike will hit for the hods 
and the truck-scats. 

"I would like to see Duluth given 
the anual tournament of the Na- 
tional Ski tournament as a perma- 
nent institution." .said one of the 
Chicago delegates to t^ meeting of 
he national association, tTs he watched 
the riders descending the big slide 
on Chester hill Thursday afternoon. 
'This is the city for the tournament. 
The hill can't be beaten, the city 
Is centrally located for riders and 
spectators alike, and the national 
tournament should be held in a big 
city, where there would be no 
trouble about accommodations for the 
visitors. I was going to ."suggest at 
the annual meting, that Duluth be 
given the tournament again, but the 
Eau Claire people were so hot on 
the trail of the 1S»09 tournament that 
they didn't give anybody else a 
chance to say a word." 

The Chicago man is radical and 
his statement will not strike a popu- 
lar note among the ski enthusiasts 
of tho smaller towns, who look for- 
ward to entertaining the national as- 
sociation at some time in the future. 
But the Chicago friend of Duluth 
shows good sense. 

Nothing would suit Duluth better 
than to entertain the National Ski 
association year after year. The big 
winter ski carnival is an attraction 
not to be ignored by any city. It 
brings thousands Into the city and 
furnishes an afternoon of enjoyable 
sport for the natives. Duluth would 
guarantee the national association 
entertainment such as It can receive 
in no other city. Duluth always 
has an outstretched hand for de- 
votees of clean sport, and the mem- 
bers of the ski clubs of the North- 
west are all of that. 

But all members of the national 
association do not see things In the 
-same light as the Chicago man. 
Should an attempt bo made to locate 
the national tournment in Duluth 
permnently, the howl that would go 
up from the other delegates would 
be heard on the other .side of the 
earth. So Duluth is forced to 

await Its chance to line the delegates 
up again for the Zenith City That 
should be soon. The vi'eather man 
didn't give tho city a fair chance 
to show its appreciation of the ski 
riders this year, although the tourna- 
ment was the greatest ever held by 
the association. With a fair break 
on the w'^ather, Duluth, will 
a rocord In more respects than

Carl Ahlroth Makes Good 

Among the Eastern 



is in tlie Game 

Sports* Sake 



Carl Ahlroth, who last year broke the 
half-mile skating record at Mlnneapo- 
li^s. won new honors this year by be- 
ing selected as one of the two repre- 
sentatives of the Western Skating as- 
sociation to compete In the Interna- 
tional races at Saranao T/ake, Mon- 
treal, Pittsburg and Cleveland. His 
trip brought him recognition through- 
out the country, as he won the indoor 
skating champion-ship of Canada at 

Montreal, by winning two events, and 
he was the star of the meet at Saranac 
Lake. He fell down In his form at 
Pittsburg and Cleveland and failed to 
score any first honors. 

Ahlroth is the best skater Duluth 
has tamed out. He has speed com- 
bined with grade and is believed to 
have a great future on the steel blades. 
He has been racing for several .years 
with gr-^at success, but the present 
season has ben his best. When racing 
in form in the East, he jlrew wide at- 
tention and it is predicted that next 
year, he will send some records flying. 
Ahlroth is a window decorator, em- 
ployed by one of the Superior street 
stores, and goes into racing for the 
sport only. He has a large collection 
of medals won In different events 
throughout the country. 


Indian Runner Can No Longer Com- 
pete as an Amateur. 

New York. Feb. 15.— Tom Longboat, 
the Canadian long distance runner. Is 
now. according to the officers of the 
officers of the Amateur Athletic union, 
an out and out professional. Suspended 
some time ago by the union on charges 
uf professionalism. Longboat ran at 
Boston the other night against three 
men, one of whom is said to be an 
avowed professional. This, the union 
officers say, ends all question as to the 
possible reinstatement of the Indian. 




Five Yacht Clubs Arc 
Planning on Perman- 
ent Association. 

Duluth. White Bear, Cal- 
houn, Minnetonka and 
Possibly Superior. 

A permanent regatta association, to 
oonsist of four, and possibly five, yacht 
clubs of Minnesota and Wisconsin, In- 
cluding Duluth, White Bear, Lake Cal- 
houn. Minnetonika and Superior, Is be- 
ing agitated by Commodore Horace 
Johnson of the Duluth Yacht club, and 
the officials of the White Bear organi- 

The indications are that plans for the 
association will (materialize before the 
opening of the 190S season. It is prac- 
tically an assured fact that an organ- 
ization ot the kind proposed will be 
perfected within the next few weeks. 
Arrangiments will be made for it Im- 
mediately following the annual meet- 
ing of the White Bear club, which will 
be held e>arly in March. 

Superior is a doubtful quantity, but 
Duluth, White Bear, Lake Calhoun and 
Lake Minnetonka will surely be In the 
association, if formed, and It Is con- 
sidered rather probable that Superior 
also will get into the game. It is pro- 
posed to have a regatta every year. In 
which members of the association will 
participate, and to hold the events in 
rotation — In Duluth one year, the next 
at White Bear the following year, and 
the one following at Lake Minnetonka, 
and so on. I.ake Calhoun Is considered 
small for suoh an event, and possibly 
the races will be held at White Bear, 
Lake Minnetonka and in the Duluth- 
Superior harbor. Lake Calhoun partici- 
pating just the same as the other clubs. 

A state championship cup will be 
hung up, and will be raced for every 
year. Besides the cup for the winning 
club, there will be trophies for the in- 
dividual winning yachts, and prizes 
for members of the wlnnlrjg crews, In 
the shape of appropriate cuff buttons, 
watch fobs, or something af a slmilar 

Thirty-two footers of the type used 
in the 32- foot class on the local harbor 
will be eligible to entry, and the re- 
gattas will be primarily for boats of 
this type. They are known as the 
White Bear type boats. 

The first regatta will doubtless be 
held this y^r, but It will not come to 
Duluth, because of the fact that Du- 
luth had an event of this kind last 
summer, in which the other clubs 
named participated. The IXiluth boats 
will be entered, however. Duluth 
yachtsmen also are piLanning on en- 
tering the Chicago Yacht club 18-foot 
restricted class race, to be held at Chi- 
cago late In the stimmer, for the Nut- 
ting cup, and in addition to this a. re- 
gatta Is planned for local waters. In 
which Duluth and Houghton yachts 
shall take part, so the coming season 
is likely to be a very busy one for the 
Duluth sailors, for they wlU have the 
usual sea^Dn's races among themselves. 

There is a possibility that s<^>me of the 
Twin City boats will again come to 
Duluth this year, although not in the 
tegular association regatta that is 
planned, as explained above. 

The Duluth club was never in a more 
flourishing condition than at present, 
and the indications are that the com- 
ing season w ill be by far the most sue 
cessful In the history of the local or- 
ganlzati<»h. There will be additions 
to the Duluth fleet, and further Im- 
provements are being planned for the 
line club house on Park Point. It is 
expected there will be a big increase 
in the member.ship. The social side of 
tlie club will come in for considerable 
attention during 1908, and in succeed- 
ing seasons, and the new dancing pa- 
vilion, which was completed last sum- 
mer, will prove a strong attraction to 

Just now members are confining their 
attention to ice boating, and there are 
more Ice boats on the harbor than ever 
before. The last snow spoiled the sport 
for a time, but the three or four days 
of warm weather this week melted the 
snow to such an extent that it has dis- 
appeared almost entirely, and in its 
place is a fine sheet of ice for boating. 
This is being made the most of by en-

Superior Basketball Team Defeats 
Bemidji Five. 

Bemldji, Minn., Feb. 15.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— The Co. I basketball team of 
Superior defeated the "Big Bemldji" 
team last evening for the second time, 
in succession, the score of last night's 
contest being 19 to 15. 

The game last evening was very evenly 
contested, the accuracy of Burr, the 
big center for the visiting team in 
throwing free baskets from the foul win-

ter of field baskets, each team made 
three, scoring six points. Bemidji got 
but seven points from free throws, while

promises to be an interesting one. 


First Program for Olym- 
piad Made Public 
in England. 

Only Few Minor Details 

Remain to be 


New York, Feb. 15. — The first draft 
program of the British Olympic 
games has been Issued, and though 
the opening is yet far away, only a 
few of the minor fixtures remain to 
be arranged. The original idea was 
to have ball and other games de- 
cided In the spring of this year, but 
Insuperable obstacles arose, and It is 
now officially announced that so far 
at any rate as the stadium events 
are concerned there will not be any 
competitions during the spring. It 
is unofficially stated that King Ed- 
ward will open the games. 

The opening of the track and field 
events in the .stadium has been set 
for Julj' 18, but it is Just possible 
It may get a shift to a couple of 
days earlier. So far as the dates 
are fixed they are as follows: 

Golf — June 1, 2 and 3. 

Polo — During week ending June 
20, with finals on a later date at 
Hurl Ingham. 

Athletics — July 18 in 

Shooting — July 8. 9 

Rowing — July 28 at Henley. 

Yachting — July 27, 28 and 29 at 

Association football, hockey and 
lacrosse — October. 

The dates for lawn tennis, racquets 
and other minor pastimes will be 
announced soon. The speed skating 
conte.sta have been abandoned, but 
there will be a competition of figure 
skating at Prince's In October. Prev- 
ious to the big meet in the s»tadlum 
the track will be used by the different 
clubs for their various sports. Early 
in May the Flnchley Harriers will 
hold a big carnival, in which the 
different branches of athletics will be 
liberally catered to, and the Poly- 
technic Harriers have announced two 
meets, one fv)r June 8 and the other 
for July 11. the latt^^r the Saturday 
prior to the opening of the Olympic 

As at present arranged. It is sup- 
posed that on June 8. the program 
shall include 100 and 8 80-yard open 
handicaps, two-mile walking handi- 
cap, three-mile scratch, 440-yard 
scratch, half-mile cycle and mile 
handicap, and five-mile cycle scratch, 
swimming, fancy diving and water 
polo, the day to wind up with a 
gymnastic exhibition and drill. The 
Polytechnics will occupy the July 
date in a dual meet with Le Stade 
Francaise, and the regular list of 
events will be supplemented by a 
series of handicap contests open to 

For the match events will be 100 
and 440 yards, one and three-mile 
runs, 120-yard hurdles, high and 
broad Jumps. The handicaps will be 
120 and 880-yard runs, 120-yard 
hurdles, three-mile run and two-mile 
walking race; cycling, one-quarter 
mile and one-mile handicaps, half- 
mile and five-mile scratch, and open 
handicap swimming race for women, 
a team swimming race and a water 
polo tourney for teams in the south of 
England. There will be a boxing con- 
test of 136 pounds. Another meet is 
thought of for .September as well as a 
London to Brighton walk. 

An idea of the importance of the 
Polytechnics In the Olympiad can be 
gathered from the fact that they have 
been asked by the Amateur Athletic 
association to arrange for the Mara- 
thon trial. The club ha.s laid the plans 
for a twenty-mile race April 25 next, 
and the request came from the gov- 
erning body that this constitute the 
Marathon trial. Of the Poly- 
technics were glad to give consent. 
This race will be over the same course 
practically as the real Marathon event, 
the only difference being that the start 
will take place at High street, Eton, 
Instead of the grounds at Windsor 
Castle, and the finish will be at Sud- 
burj' in.stead of in the stadium at Shep- 
herd's Bush. 

A suggestion has been made with re- 
gard to altering the route somewhat 
toward the finish of the Marathon 
race, so as to avoid the traffic. It is 
receiving consideration, but whether 
the route as determined upon some 
time since will be deviated from in the 
least will depend upon where the en- 
trance to the stadium for the runners 
Is to be. It Is arranged that by and 
by J. Andrews of the Polytechnic Har- 
riers is to measure the course. A nov- 
elty will be Introduced In marking the 
course. At every mile there will be a 
metal tablet showing how far the run- 
ners have yet to go. This naturally 
will be a great help to the athletes, 
who win doubtless appreciate Its true 

The English trials for the Olymplo 
team will take place the same time as 
those in America — the first week In 
June — at the stadium. The swimming 
events will be in between the track 
and field events at the stadium, where 
a tank 110 yards long has been built 
for that The rules for fancy 
diving have been published and with 
great trouble to the British Olympic 
committee. Each stunt is defined by a 
cut and the contestant making the 
best and truest Imitation will score the

Great Records Made by 

Bowlers at National 


Cincinnati, Fob. 15.— The Thompsons' 
Colts team of Chicago, last night, won 
the Internationa] match l-etwcen the 
winners in 1907 of the five teams' 
championship of the American Bowling 
congress, National Bowling a.ssociatlon, 
Western Bowling assoc:ali«n and the 
Canadiiin Bowlers' association. 

Bv winning this mateli, Thompsons' 
Colts won a prize of $400 in gold. This 
match consists of nine games, three 
on each of the last ihi-ee evenings, and 
the winners had a total of 8,178. 

The 1,200-mark was crossed three 
times by two-men teams that bowled 
in the national tournament yesterday. 
The first and second positions In this 
struggle were, however, left untouched, 
and the trio of i>airs that made the 
big scores of the morning, had to be 
eatished with third, fourth and fifth 

It was the best general exhibition of 
star bowling that has been seen at the 
Armory thus far, particularly by the 
bowling of the .«econd shift of sixteen 
teams, in which only one fell below 
the L,O00-mark and two passed the 

In the fourth and last shift of two- 
men teams, Charles Horndrof and M. 
E. Faetz of Chicago piled up a score 
of 1,237, which is seventeen points less 
than the record-breaking score made 
by their fellow town.smen, Chalmers 
and Flene. the leaders in this class. 

The business session of the congress 
opened yesterday afternoon. Fifty- 
three new associations were admitted 
Into the as.sociation and forty expelled 
for non-payment of dues. The 
president recommended that steps be 
taken to prevent the formation of 
mushro<:>m clubs just before national 
meetings in order to get delegates. 

The salary of the secretary of the 
congress was raised from $300 to $1,000. 
and the provision was made that open 
headquarters should be established at 
least four weeks before the opening of 
the tourneys.

New York, Feb. 15.— The entries for 
the automobile races at Ormonde will 
close today at the rooms of the auto- 
mobile club of America, which is this 
year In charge of events. Eleven cars 
had been entered last night, and more 
ere expected today. Among the cars 
entered aie several very speedy ones, 
and it is exp<-cted that some time will 
be made and that in all probability 
records will be broken. Among those 
entering cars are E. R. Thomas, who 
purchased the car which Elliot F. 
Shepard drove in the last Vanderbilt 
cup race; VV. Go-uld Brokaw. who will 
drive a car which he used in Europe 
last year; E. P. Blackeley, who will 
drive the car which won the Minne- 
apolis 100-miJe championship race last 
year; R. Q. Kelsey and others. 

From all Indications the ski tourna- 
ment on Chaster hill tomorrow will 
surpass the national tournament 
Thursday in long Jumps and other fea- 
tures. The public is apparently taking 
more interest in It than they did in the 
national tournament, and It is believed 
the crowd tomorrow afternoon will bo 
larger than that of Thursday, when 
9,000 people gathered. 

The principal interest in the tourna- 
ment comes from the rivalry between 
Ole FeJrii.g, the defe-ated champion, 
and John Evenson. Feiring has hun- 
dreds of friends among the close follow- 
ers of ski riding, and they were disap- 
pointed with his performance Thurs- 
day. They believe he can do better, 
and the s^iortingly inclined are wager- 
ing money on the result of tomorrow's 
meet. Several big bets have been 
placed on Feiring, and Ole is preparing 
to make good for the benefit of his 

Feiring has done 120 feet in practice 
on the Chester hill slide, and he says 
he can do it again. Incidentally both 
he and the officer.s of the .Ski club em- 
phatically deny a report, which has re- 
ceived wide circulation, that Feirlngs 
poor work Thursday was the result of 
a celebration of his victory at the 
Coleraine tourney last Sunday. Feir- 
ing broke one of his skis at the Red 
Wing tournament last week, and was 
compelled to use an old pair, owned 
by John Mangseth. They were coated 
with wax for soft weather, and he did 
not have time to properly clear the 
bottoms before the tournament. He 
gives that as the reason for his poor 
showing, and is getting a pair of skis 
in shape for Sunday, which will allow 
him to do his best. He is thoroughly 
aroused over his loss of prestige, and 
his performance tomorrow, with so 
much at stake., will be worth seeing. 

In the meantime, John Evenson 
doesn't think Feiring will beat him 
tomorrow. He did 116 feet with the 
slide In indifferent condition, and he 
thinks tomorrow, with everything fav- 
orable, he v.ill be able to do much 
better. Olof Junnum of Coleraine is 
also anxious to beat his mark of 111 
feet made Thursday, while a score of 
other riders are buoyed up with hope. 

The oftlcers of the Duluth club are 
doing everything possible to make to- 
morrow',^ tournament a success. They 
have put up prizes of $275, and most 
of the crack riders who took part in 
Thursday's tournament have remained 
over to go after the money. With the 
array of talent which will be on the 
cards, the .Ski club expects a great 
tournament, and they will undoubtedly 
have a great crowd to see it.

Chicago, Feb. 15.— Michigan, although 
eligible for the conference track meet, 
probably will not take part in the an- 
nual event in June, but if it does enter 
its athletes for the Midway games it 
will receive one of the rudest snubs 
ever given a university. So say two 
members of the conference committee. 
They believe Michigan is wise enough 
to stay out. 

When the Wolverine athletic board 
voted tc withdraw from the inter- 
collegiate conference, with the declara- 
tion that it considered the athletic re- 
forms of the conference a step in the 
wrong direction, general t)ellet among 
college men was expressed that the 
Wolverines liad vJust their lot, for a 
time, at least, solely with the East. 

The action of the alumni committee 
of the conference fLSSociation, which 
governs the conduct of the annua! out- 
door games, in decreeing that Michigan 
was eligible to the June meet under the 
rules, and could compete if it cared to 
do so came as a big surprise, and there 
was much conjecture as to whether or 
not Michigan would enter the lists. 
Two Speak for MUliigan. 

OJticially, Michigan neither has said 
it w ould nor it would not, and probably 
will not make a reply to the kindly in- 
clined alumni committee. But Michi- 
gan has at least two speakers— from 
other colleges— who say Michigan will 
not dare enter a team. If it does, they 
say, Michigan's entries will be refused 
on a technicality and the university at 
Ann Arbor snubbed. 

"I don't think there Is one chance in 
a thousand that Michigan will take 
advantage of its right to enter a team," 
said one of these two officials last 
night. "But if Michigan did enter a 
team— which it has a perfect right to 
do — the conference would reject them. 
The conference has a loophole of escape 
In a which declares that any 
entry may be rejected at th« will of the 

"Michigan undoubtedly will not en- 
ter a man in the meet, " said the other 
official. "If it did the conference could 
do nothing else but to turn the entries 
down In the hardest kind of a manner. 
This would oe a hard snub for Michi- 
gan. Michigan is far too wise to be 
caught ill any such trap, if such it 
might be termed." 

No Entries .\ro Expectetl. 

Dr. J. E. liaycroft of the I'liiversity 
of Chicago also believes Michtgan will 
not enter a team, and his views are 
identical with those of .Scott Bond, the 
University of Chicago member of the 
alumni committee. At the Midway 
campus it is b-'lieved generally that the 
Wolverines will not send a team to the

Will be Asked by Miss 
Ashford From Sena- 
tor Davis. 

Washington, Feb. 15. -Despite the fair 
words of Miss Aehford and the cav.aller- 
like acceptance of her dismissal by ex- 
Senator Henry Gas.saway Davis of West 
Virginia, there are storm signals flying 
which Indicate that the shattered ro- 
mance will not die witnout an after- 
math of trouble. 

According to the authentic reports Miss 
Ashford expects a monetary settlement 
for her generosity in freeing the aged 
multi-millionaire from his obligation. 
There are eciually slgnittcant signs that 
the ex-senator is indisposed to make such 
an adjustment. It became known yester- 
day that Miss Ashford was In consulta- 
tion with two attorneys wiiUe ex-Sena- 
tor Davis iKid hurriedly left the city. 
Although she will not confirm the report 
that she int<-nd.s to, sue the senator for 
breach of proini:-e 1i Is very evident that 
she intends to negotiate for money dam- 
ages. Friends of the family state that 
Miss Ashford does not at present intend 
to bring suit in tlie courts, but is certain 
of a quiet settlement of her demands'. 

In an Interviev/ Miss Ashford said: 
"Contrary to current reports 1 have not 
received one penny in settlement from 
Senator Davis. Senator Davis has al- 
ways been most kfhd to me, and I con- 
sider him an honorabl« gentleman, and 
I would be very ^ieved to think that I 
would ever be plao^ In a position where 
it will be necessarjr 'to sue him for mon- 
ey. I have not ftiily consulted my 
two attorneys as /et, however." 

Eau Claire, Wis,, 
Make Sixth Town of 
the League. 

Ted Sullivan, the veteran baseball, will be in Duluth Monday morn- 
ing, and he and A. W. Kuehnow will 
bring to a head the negotiations for 
the placing of a team in Superior to 
take a place in the circuit of the 
Northern league. Mr. Kuehnow is act- 
ing for the league in the matter and 
has been carrying on negotiatlona with 
a party of Superior eniiiusiasts for a 
franchise in the league. If a down- 
town park'can be secured, Ted is will- 
ing to place a team in the city across 
the bay, and he is coming to the Head 
of the Lakes to close the final ar- 

The .Superior people interested in the 
enterprise. It is said, have secured the 
option on a lease of a tine piece of 
property in the central part of the 
town, for a ba.seball park. If that deal 
will be closed, Ted Sullivan will do the 
rest. He knows baseball from the 
frontispiece to the linis, and if h< 
takes hold of the Sutierior Interests in 
the Northern league, liie Wisconsin city 
will be a contender for the pennant. 
Where baseball Is concerned, 'fheodort 
Is It and Superior people will do well 
In securing him to manage the team. 

The Ka\i Cialrc Baseball association, 
wiilch recently disposed of its fran- 
chise in the Wisconsin-Illinois league to 
lto<kford. III., has made application foi 
a franchise In the Northern league, and 
the application will undoubtedly be 
acted upon favorably, putting an end 
to the vexatious question of the sixth 
team. With Brandon, Winnipeg, Fargo, 
Duluth, Superior and Eau Claire In the 
< Ircuif, the Northern league looks like 
a winner. 

Eau Claire is 15S miles from Duluth on 
the Omaha road, and is one of the llvest 
towns In that part of Wisconsin. Th< 
Northern league magnates have no fear 
of making a mistake In taking the cit: 
Into the fold. 

A meeting of the league will probably 
be held the latter part of next week 
when the circuit will be finally settled 
upon. If the Superior deal goes through, 
there wil be no obstacles in the way of 
th league going ahead and starting the 
season at the regular time. If the nego- 
tiations at Superior go under, it will be 
necessary to turn to Crookston and 
Grand Forks again and drag one of 
them Into the circuit. It Is believed, 
however, that sufficient interest hat 
been aroused In Superior to get that 
town Into the league, .and the circuit 
will be composed of the six live townt 


Industrial Plants Show 
Steady Increase in Re- 
suming Business. 

New York, Feb. 15. — R. G. Dun 
& Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade, 
says: Industrial plants steadily de- 
crease the percentage of idle ma- 
chinery, especially in the ste* 1 busi- 
ness, which increases the size of pay- 
rolls and by raising the purchating 
power of the wage earner improves 
retail trade. Thus far progress Is 
slow in wholesale and jobbing de- 
partments, but a.s retail stocks are 
depleted there is more disposition to 
place orders for spring goods. Re- 
ports are still Irregular in some sec- 
tions of the country, and a few in- 
terior cities record b,usiness even 
better than at this time last year. 

Each week more contracts are 
placed for steel than In the week 
preceding, and conservative buying 
of the last few months has made 
the statistical riosition strong. Fol- 
lowing the large order for steel rails

other substantial contracts and more

To Include Large Fart of I pper

Calumet, Mich., Feb. 15. — Repre-

with Chief Forester Gifford Pinchot at 
Washington for the completicm of a 
great national forest resrve in the up- 
per part of the lower peninsula of 
Michigan. Mr. Loud is satisfied that 
the creation of the reserve, which was 
also discussed with President Snyder 
of the Michigan Agricultural college, 
when he was in Washington, can be 
completed in a few weeks. 

The main body of the government 
land is a tract of about 30,000 acres 
just south of the Au Sable river. The 
state owns another vast tract (college 
lands) north of the river. There are 
small sections of state land and gov- 
ernment land on either side. Mr. Loud 
seeks to have the state and govern- 
ment lands traded, acre for acre, so 
that each re.serve can be compact. 
Then the state will devote lUs 4 2,000 
acres and the government Its 30,000 
acres to reforestratlon.

Aliix* Xlelst'H. Alice Nielsen Is the prima donna 
soprano of the company. Once a favor- 
ite of the light opera stage Miss Nielsen 
today id a l.vrio soprano of grand opera, 
who has very few equals. Ilej- father 
was a Danish palnier and her mother Is 
proud of her Irish blood, but Miss Niel- 
sen herself Is an American. She was 
Ixjrn in America, gre-w to girlhood In 
Am.rioa. and sang lierself Into American 
favor. Alice Nielsen could always sing, 
she nev^T had to learn. Her ttrsi pro- 
fesslonaT engagement was made when 
she was <ighl. Whfii 15 she made her 
debut as prima donna in "The Mikado" 
at Oakland, Cal. Shortly after that en- 
gagement she joined thtj Bostoniatis and 
her success with that organization is well 
known to every American theatergoer. 
As America's light opera prima donna 
in ItiOl she went to London In "The Sing- 
ing Girl." Henry Rus.sell. who at that 
lime was an eminent vocal teacher In 
Li.inlon numbering among his pupils 
many of the city's smartest musical set. 
heard Miss Nielsen sing and advi.sed her 
to abandon her light opera career and 
study for grand opera. She determined 
to do so and began her studies with Mr. 
Ru.ssel at once. In 19«>4 Miss Nielsen ap- 
peared during the brilliant sea.son at 
Covftit Garden and at the New Waldorf, 
where she received noteworthy i-om- 
mendation from the musical press for 
liei Gilda In "Rigoletto." her Mlml to 
Carii.-^o's Rodolfo in •■l..a Bohemo" and 
other leading roles. Miss Nielsen was 
many times tempted to return to the 
llghgt opera stage. Two years ago she 
was ofTend itW.iJOi) for forty weeks if she 
would star in a new comic opera. Her 
success last year with the San Carlo 
Grand Opera lompany was universal and 
empl;atic. As prima donna soprano of 
the company this sea.son she will un- 
questionably prove herself of still larger 
capabilities in grand opera, for she never 
ceases to be a student. 

MHiluiuo Noria. 

Madame Jane Noria, the dramatic so- 
prano of the company is a sir.g.r z' ex- 
traordinary beauty. She was born and 
rearcil in St. l^ouls, where her father was 
a prominent physician. She received her 
first vocal education in St. I»uis and 
sang In many concerts and with Savage's 
Engli.-'h Opera company successfully. To 
perfect her voice she went to Europe, 
where after a brief period of hard study, 
she was engaged by the director of the 
Grand Opera In Paris for a term of three 
years during wliich tim^ she sang t 
leading roles of the inasterpieces of the 
cieat Italian and German composers. 
With the San Carlo Grand Opera com- 
pany. Madame Noria will appear here at

Notable Mitsieai Organization Will 
be in Dulutir Washington's Birtiida} 

One of the most notable musical com- 
edy attractions of the season will be m 
Duluth Feb. 2l', matinee and night. The 
Cohan and Harris comedians, an or- 
ganization which has won distinction 
for the even excellence of its Der- 
formances, the completeness and the 
beauty of its productions, and its splen- 
did ensembles and casts, will present 
liere George Ai. Cohan's most successful 
musieal play. 'George Washington, Jr.," 
vhich for the past two years has proved 
of sufficient merit to remain in New 
York, Chicago, Boston and a few of tiie 
prhuipal cities where it enjoyed long 
runs. Its notable engagement at -.he 
Herald Square theater In New York tor 
several months and for half a season at 
tile Colonial theater in Chicago, places 
it in the front ranks of successful 
musical productions l.,ike all of Cohaa's 
plajs. "George Washington, Jr." con- 
tains all the elements and features that 
have done so jnuch to almost revolu- 
tionize musical comedy in this country. 
It has a well defined dramatic story, ui- 
cid< nts which might seriously be called 
melodramatic, farce and comedy, to say 
nothing of the nine musical numbers, ail 
consisuntly introduced to help in the 
development of the story. Several >f Cohan songs have obtained wide 
popularity and have been whistled and 
sang by half the universe, notably "Its 

production, as witnessed In New York, 
Boston .and Chicago, will be seen here 

a Grand Old Flag." "Virginia." "He Was 
a \Vonderful Man." "If Washington 
Should Come to Life," 'Til Be There 
With Bells On," "The Wedding of the 
Blue and the Gray," and others. All the 
music Is .seml-patriotlc, but all of It is 
lively, bright and catchy. The com- 
pany nr.stntlnf the play is a large one, 
containing an attractive chorus and a 
notable cast. The title role will i)e

principal members include Willis P.

Edward Lester, Frank McNIsh, Jr., John

Will be at the Lyeenm But Tw( 
Nights Next Week. 

Tlie Maok-Leone players have but two 
nights In the Lyceum during tho coming 
week, Thursday and Friday, with a spe- 
cial Friday matinee. They will repeat 
for three performances, Mr. Mack's own 
play, "Sage Brusli." The play was given 
a very elaborate prodlictlon at the Ly- 
ceum last October, and as the produc- 
tion was all stored and kept intact. It 
will be reproduced In the same manner. 
Mr. Mack wrote the play from an inti- 
mate and positive knowledge of his 
characters. It Is a quiet, unassuming 
little story without any holdups, train 
roi>berles or murders. The play was 
commented upon very highly last fall, 
and It is due to thlg fact that It is being 
repeated. F'rank Patton will again as- 
sume the part of Hank Jones and Mr. 
Fitzsimmons will play Willie Settle, the 
Plnkerton. There will be a special Fri- 
day matinee.

Sothern Extends Engagement on Account of Success 
as Dundreary—Nazimova Soon to Start Upon Her 

First Road Tour. 

New York, Feb. 15 —E. H. Sothern has 
taken New York by storm with his im- 
personation of Lord Dundreary in Tom 
Taylor's old play, "Our America«i Cousin." 
The popularity oif the piece bids fair to 
Identify the present Sothern with the ec- 
centric role of the Englishman as com- 
pletely as the elder Sothern was identi- 
fied with it for many years back. Tlie 
old-timers are carried back 
years and the youngsters are crowding 
Into the Lyric because they heard their 
forebears speak so ardently of Dun- 
dreary's idiosyncracies. As a result of 
thi^ enthusiasm which he has created 
Sothern's program iias been rearranged. 
Ho played Dundreary all this week and 
will also play it next week, instea-il of 
his repertoire, and perhaps after that. 

The remarkal>le success which he has 
m"t with in this n)ie may induce him to 
revive anotlier play of his father's, "The 
Crushed Tragedian." That play was al- 
so written by Tom Taylor, and in the 
principal role tlie first Sothern divided 
honors evenly with Dundreary. It l.s iiard 
to explain why the Dundreary jokes 
pass at this late day. Hi>weve.r, they do. 
and pei>ple laugh as heartily at Dun- 
dreary's silliclsms as people did a genera- 
tion ago. Perhap.s it will come to pass, 
as it did Uien, that the Dundreary style 
of coat and whiskers may come again 
into vogue. .^.Ireody familiar lines from 
the play are heard quoted on the curb. 
The .saying, "That's one of those things 
that no fellow can find out," has re- 
sumed its place in the current plirase 
lexicon of the boulevardier.

George M. Cohan ha« succeedejj Maxine 
Elliott at the Garrick with • hi.s "Fifty 
Miles From Boston." It is a Cohan«^que 
novely. which noboiJy takes s«^riously. but 
which provide.s a modicum of fun for 
fhose who like that sort of thing. It oc- 
cupies no high plane, literary or musi- 
cal, but it is brim full of drastic humor, 
forced, though it is. and spirited tunes 
that make a strong appeal to one's mem- 
ory. Mr. Cohan was called out between 
the acts Monday evening and asked his 
audience not to take him seriously, but 
to accept his goods for what he offered 
them. And the public good-naturedly 
complied. It Is enough to say that it is 
entertainment of tlie .sort many New 
Yorkers relish and fatten on. In the 
scene where the liero robs the postoffioe 
oi WOO. lured to do s.j by the villain. 
Cohan has taken a chapter out of "A 
Grand Army Man," wherein the hero Is 
likewise tempted. Many of the inconsis- 
ten-cles are nicely glossed over with farce 

and song and eccentric characterizations 
and ilie eternal fjtne.«3 of things. But .t 
is rollicking stuff, projected at a degree 
of velocity that hardly enables you to 
get your bearings, and Just sweeps you 
along ahead of schedule lime for a rec- 
ord of more or less pleaaing nonsen&o.

•iualiiies, in her opinion, should adorn a 
critic with a ready analysis. "He should 
know at least a few things about tho 
stag-e. should be intelligent, should be 
able to lay some claim to a literary style 
-ar.d he should, above all thiuKS, be 
free frein prejudice." 

"That sounds simple and reasonable— 
and what kind of criticism should be 
written?" asked the Interviewer. 

"Honest and dignifkd," answered Miss 
Barrymore. "'Fids ridiculing plays that 
arc intended to be serious, ridiculing the 
work of actors who are serious women 
and men, who are seriosuly trying to do 
the best that is In them— all this Is 
wrung. Harcasm should have no plac« in 
criticism at all. It only makes the men 
at whom it Is aimed resentful— and U 
hurts the women. It does not stir any 
one to doing better things; It simply 
makes them bitter and makes a difficult 
life still more difficult. It does no good 
and It does a great deal of harm." 

A good deal more along this line Miss 
Barrymore said, and when she was asked 
about audiences she up and declared: "I 
\earn for the audience.s of other cities, 
audiences that appear to come to the the- 
ater to be amu.sed and entertained. The 
New York public has such a superior 
air and its attitude is of tryin? to 
find out how bad a play can really be 
found to be. It goes to carp, not to laugh 
and cry."

her most amiable way. all througli. She

However, all this is preliminary to the 
real issue, the open revolt of actors 
against the treatment accorded them by 
these impartial literary hangmen. Ethel 
Barrymore and Arnold Daly have recent- 
ly thrown discretion to the wind and 
aired their opinions of the metropolitan 
critics. Their frankness is delightful. 
They actually assume that they have as 
much right to criticise the critics as the 
critics have to criticise them. Of course 
this is seditious.

Miss Barrymore was asked by the Her- 
ald how she expected to be received when 
she appeared as Rosalind, "I expect to 
get roasted," naively replied that splen- 
did young daughter of Thespis. And be- 
fore' her frankness had time to cool she 
continued: "I.*t me add that I hate 
New York critics and New Y'ork audi-

ment to her face. Having defied their 
wrath, she began to dissect them— the 
critics. She did It with adroitness and

But though Miss Barrymore spoke her 
mind freely and without mental reserva- 
ilon or .secret evasion, she was not so 
severe as Arnold Daly In his arraign- 
ment of the craft. He said: "We have 
the spectacle of gentlemen of education 
and breeding making a pitiable exhibition 
of themselves In a futile effort to be 
funny at the expense of an unfortunate 
being. This. I may say, is the attitude of 
the New York critic toward everything 
of the stage— they must be funny— at any 
sacrifice they must be funny. Tliat your 
critic has no attributes for his office is 
easily proved if you re^id him well. Any 
mtdlocre actor could take the criticism ■» 
of most of these so-called critlcg and tear 
their reasoning to pieces, they 
re.-illy know little concerning whereof 
tluy speak. Your critic Is not even an 
enthusiastic theorist. (^ritlclsni Is the

in which It Is possible to obta^in from

of the limited demands that there will be 
made upon the association in financial 
sense, the best known managers are op- 
posed to the plan. For this reason there 
there lias been talk of changes in the 

scheme originally outlined, and even the

Not so many months back a hue and 
cry was raised because the position of 
the director in the new theater now being 
pushed forward in New York city has 
been tendered to Granville Barker, who 
has done so much fur the intellectual 
drama during his brief reign as the 
head and front of the Savoy theater in 
London. 'Ihere was weeping and des- 
pair that the call had gone outside of 
America for a man to start the new re- 
gime in this proposed theater, the .suc- 
cess of which will mean a gerat deal for 
our stage. Now that it Is effectually 
settled that Mr. Barker will conduct the 
new theater when It Is opened, the peo- 
ple who decried his coming are leading 
the chorus In praise of him. From a 
.source that was foremost In this move- 
ment is now copied a recent contribution 
from G. Barnard Shaw, in whi<h the 
brilliant Irishman pays the following 
tribute to Mr. Barkers worth. 

"England offers to .Mr. Barker an op- 
portunity of endowing the British 
drama with his own time, liis own t:il- 
ent an<l his own private means at his 
own risk, with the additional adv:in- 
tage of liaving ills plays suppressed, 
his character vilified and his enter- 
prises steadily disparaged and belittled 
b.v tile jiress. America, on the other 
hand, offers to btilld Mr. Barker a mag- 
nificent theater, to pay Mr. Barker a 
magnificent sal.iry, and to place at Mr. 
Barker's disposal more money for the 
production of a single pl.ay than ho 
had here for the production of a dozen. 
If he will go over and do for New York 
what he has done for London. Can you 
suggest any moral reason why Mr. 
Barker should refuse that offer?"

she presented there a comedy called

connection with tho production was 
the absence from the cast of Charles

the lover making sacrifices to save the

On Tuesday night, Mrs. Patrick Camp- 
bell made the initial English presentation 
of the Greek play, "Electra," which in 
conjunction with the original Japanese 
plav, "The Flower of Yamato," consti- 
tutes the bill at the Garden. Associated 
with Mrs. Campbell was s(K;n a company 
including Mrs. Beerbohm Tree, the wife 
of liie Engli-sh actor- manager; Mrs. 
Campbell's daughter, Stella Patrick 
Campbell; Ben Webster and Charles Dal- 
ton. "Electra," originally written by 
Sophocles, has been adapted for the mod- 
ern stage by Hugo Von Hofmanstahl and 
presented in Berlin in German. From 
that language, Arthur Symon. the Eng- 
lish litterateur and critic, has translated 
it into English. 

"The Flower of Yamalo," Is an orig- 
inal Japanese play translated Into Eng- 
lish by the Vicomte d'Humeriere. the or- 
ganizer of the New Arts theater in Paris. 
Both are tragedies; bot hold exception- 
al opportunities for an emotional actress; 
"Electra" is the sum total of human 
emotion expressed without restraint or 
care for consequences; the part of Mur- 
asakl In "The Flower of Yamato" calls 
for all the suppressed emotion and self- 
sacrifice of which a woman is capable. 

To those who are familiar with the 
writings of Sophocles, there will be little 
need for an explanation of the things 
this play of "Electra" holds for a capa- 
ble .actress. The grimness of the theme, 
the wonderful concentration of the idea, 
of revenge that possess the chief char- 
acter throughout; the bitterness, the 
craft, the entire subjugation of every 
filial instinct to the great end of retri- 
bution, all have an irresistible apj^eal to 
the great of humanity. 

There is perhaps no more powerful 
storv in the 'ancient writings than this: 
no more deeply laid, carefully guarded 
and nursed scheme of vengeance. The 
strength, the virility, the power that un- 
derlies the whole is marvelously apparent 
from the first to the last, and the dom- 
inance of the undercurrent of revenge Is 
urquestionably one of the finest bits of 
literature yet given to the drama. 

"The Flower of Yamato" is a Japanese 
play founded upon a Japanese legend of 
great antiquity. The tale runs that Hiro- 
shima, a Samurai, has married Murasakl. 
a beautiful maiden, and haj? Uiken her 
to his house to live. Their love for each 
other is apparent at a glance. To them 
comes Endo, a Roni or b< ggar. and wan- 
derer upon the face .jf the earth. He is 
invited to refresh himself, but after a 
cup of wine goes on his way. Hiroshima 
departs upon a mission over the mount- 
ains, and while he is gone Endo returns 
and makes clear his position. He has 
come from Murasaki s own country, and 
has loved her long. . 

He implores her to flee with him to |

Chari'-'i \V. Morse, the latest hgure in the public 
pillory, sl:oiild not be blamed t r his misdeeds so 
much ari the people tiiat gave iiim the opportunity 
to hanJle great wealth through trickery. that hov- 
ered cIo>ely to the criminal law line but did not, 
apparently, go over it until toward the last of his 

Of ciiurse he must have been lacking in moral 
perception, or he would not have done as he did. 
But g:ven a sharp, not too scrupulous man, ambi- 
tious to gel rich, and a complacent public, admiring 
riches and not caring too much about how they arc 
obtamcd. and the result will always be careers 
like Morse's so long as the nian and the oppor- 
tunity are allowed to come together. 

The people are beginning to sit up and take 
notice, and it may be that opportunities such as 
came to Morse's hands will be withdrawn. So 
long as the public did not scrutinize what was 
behind capitalization; so long as the law devoted 
its atteiui ^n to punishing sellers of gold bricks and 
permitted sellers of watered .stocks to go free; so 
long as stockbuyers and stockholders had less pro- 
tection from the public than victims of coarser con- 
dence men: so long as these things existed Morse 
and his kind flourished gaily. The opportunities 
were there, and they seized them. When they won, 
they were respected: when they lost, thoj" were 
laughed at. They ought to have been arrested in 
either event. 

Morse is 52 years old. His father was in the 
tug business in Maine, and he gave his boy a job 
clerking in the office at $1,500 a year. Morse hired 
a poor boy to do tl:e work for $500 a year, and 
with the other $1,000 he went through college. He 
entered the ice business, and in 1897 formed the ice 
trust in New York, making some millions by ad- 
vancing the price from 30 to 60 cents a hundred to 
New ^'o^k consumers in July, when the city was 
parched with heat. 

Ice trust stock wa^ $J0 a share. Morse let five 
eminent linanciers "in on the ground floor" and 
boosted t!ie stock to $40. He borrowed $500,000, 
still unpaid, from one of the banks and sent each 
of the live a check for $100,000. 

Later he dropped hints that ice stock was going 
to par, and he "reluctantly" agreed to let his 
friends have 20,000 shares. They fought for it. and 
ice stock went to $i2g. Morse got out. His friends 
hung on. Ice stock is now $14 or so, and the bot- 
tom does not appear to have been reached yet. 

Witli the plunder thus gained Morse got into 
the banking business. He organized and acquired 
a chain of banks, established steamship companies, 
and ri'ited in watered stock and the credulity of a 
susceptil)!e public. A year ago he was rated at 
$30,000,000. That wasn't enough, though if he could 
have realized it in real money and sound securities 
he couldn't possibly have spent it all. He wanted 
more. Me spread out his investments, drained his 
banks to float more rainbow schemes, and reached 
out for further millions. 

Tlicn came the pinch. Morse's fine field of grain 
wilted under the influence of an unseasonable frost. 
The whole thing went to pot. and now Morse is 
almost a fugitive from justice, though he is coming 
back ti ' face the music. 

He did a lot of mischief, but he did it because 
you, Mr. Public, let him do it. 


In one afternoon in the senate recently two inci- 
dents occurred, both of which were fraught with 
pathetic ^.ignit'icance. 

Josepli Benson Foraker, once a power in Ohio 
and the nation, but tiow thoroughly beaten in Ohio 
and more or less discredited in the nation because 
of his reactionary ideas, was talking about the 
president's reply to the charge that he had used 
federal patronage in support of the Taft candi- 
dacy. The fact that the president's friends had just 
beaten Foraker in Ohio gave additional interest to 
his talk, and the senate seats were full. He was 
in the full tide of his argument when Vice Presi- 
dent Fairbanks softly interrupted: "The senator 
will please suspend to receive a message for the 
president of the United States." A messenger had 
appeared with a communication from the president. 

The peculiar appositcness of this interuption set 
the senate and the galleries in a roar of laughter. 
Then a sudden thought of how much more appo- 
site it was than they had first thought hushed the 
uproar in an instant. Here was a statesman, once 
highly honored and now facing retirement to 
obscurity. The man above all others who repre- 
sents the movement that has brought about this 
result is Theodore Roosevelt, whose message in- 
terrupted his speech as his forces in Ohio have 
interrupted his political career. Says a Washing- 
ton correspondent who described the incident: 
"Alas, poor Foraker! He was obliged to suspend 
by the message from the president of the United 
States. He had made his fight in Ohio and lost 
completely. Lost not only the fight for the presi- 
dency, which he cared little about, but his seat in 
the senate as well." 

Soon after Foraker stopped, Chauncey M. De- 
pew, who still hangs on as a senator from New 
York, made a speech, and talked to almost empty 

:>eiu-f;c-.. "It was pitiftil," says the Washington 
dispatch, "to see how little attention the New York 
senator attracted. He began a speech which had 
for its text the recent financial disurbance in Wall 
street and the country at large. It soon developed 
into a panegyric of J. Pierpont Morgan, to whom 
Mr. Depcw gave the credit of having prevented a 
serious financial disaster b}- the prompt use of his 
great personal influence with the national banks 
and trust companies of New York." 

Here was another man who had once been an 
idolized figure in the nation, and he, too, faces the 
slippery road to dark obscurity. He whose "flashes 
of merriment were wont to set the table in a roar" 
talked to empty benches for the sake of obse- 
quiously flattering a financial magnate who sat in 
the gallery at that moment and who. the dispatch 
relates, blushed and squirmed under the attention 
attracted to him by the too-florid praise of the 
senatorial Yorick. 

Alas. Poor Chauncey! "Where be your gibes 
now; your gambols, your songs? Not one now, to 
mock your grinning? Quite chap-fallen?" 

Now get you to the chamber of the lickspittles 
of special privilege, and tell them, let them paint 
an inch thick, to this favor they must come. 


As announced in The Herald la.-^t night, Mr. 
Jacobson of Lac Qui Parle county is once more 
willing to receive the Republican nomination for 
governor. That is what he says, but anybody that 
knows the redoubtable "Jake" is fully aware that 
when he .says he is willing to take it. that is a 
polite way of saying that he is going right out to 
get it, and that if he fails it will not be for lack of 

This provides all the elements needed for a 
good, old-fashioned pre-convention fight. .Anybody 
that believes that it is going to be anything like a 
minuet, with Jacobson and Young politely bowing 
to each other as they go in a stately and dignified 
and loving manner through a maze of graceful fig- 
ures, has another guess coming. 

In the first place, it is well known that there 
was. at one time, some sort of gentlemen's agree- 
ment between Young and Jacobson. They were 
going to be nice about it, and not get in each 
other's way. Then suddenly, several newspapers 
up Jacobsoh's way started the ball rolling for him. 
Xe.xt. with every evidence of feverish haste, and of 
a desire to head off the Jacobson movement. Mr. 
Young annotHiced his candidacy upon a "harmony" 
platform — said harmony being of the usual variety; 
namely, if everybody keeps out of this but me there 
will be no fight. 

Next Mr. Dunn of Princeton, veteran of the 
bloodiest political battle in the history of the state, 
who had been "mentioned" as a possible candidate 
himself, came out with another "harmony" pro- 
posal: he was for Jacobson, and the atmosphere 
would be full of clotted harmony if all other can- 
didates except his would kindly remove themselves 
into the obscurity that properly belongs to them. 
And now comes Jacobson himself, with the modest 
announcement that he is "willin'." 

Verily, the outlook for a pleasurably exciting 
and vitrolic contest is excellent. 


In the same issue of a New York newspaper of 
recent date are two news items, neither having any 
direct connection upon the other, yet both furnish- 
ing, when taken together, a pointed lesson that re- 
quires no explanation. 

One item referred to the conditions that prevail 
in New York during the present financial depres- 
sion — though similar conditions exist there no mat- 
ter how prosperous the country is or how actively 
engaged it may be in prosecuting its industries to 
their highest possibilities. It was shown that two 
aged women were found frozen to death in one of 
the cheap tenements; that many children in the 
public schools were remaining at school through 
the noon recess, because there was no dinner for 
them at home; that at the refuge houses long lines 
of thinly clad men and women, hungry, cold and 
miserable, waited for bread when there were not 
half enough loaves to go around. The picture 
drawn in this news story was calculated to arouse 
sympathy in the coldest heart, and to start the 
springs of generosity in the dryest bosom. 

The other picture was one of generosity, but 
when paralleled with the first picture it will create 
sadness where generosity ought to cause gladness. 
Three wealthy and worthy women, noted for their 
deeds of charity, subscribed $ each for 
'•higher education in the harem." This was a 
donation for the American college for girls at Con- 
stantinople. The girls in the harems are not well 
educated, probably, it being no part of the Turk's 
outhx^k upon life that provision should be made for 
improving the minds of his women; but they are 
fed. clothed and warmed. 

Think of $30,000 going to Turkey to provide 
higher education for the women in Turkish harems, 
while chill winds were finding the holes in tattered 
garments worn by hungry men and women waiting 
in line for bread when the chances were that the 
supply would be exhausted before their turns came! 
Thirty thousand dollars would buy innumerable 
loaves of bread and countless cups of coffee; would 
provide a night's lodging for thousands; would buy 
warm clothing for a regiment; would provide trans- 
portation for the unemployed to some place where 
their labor is in demand; would buy land for hun- 
dreds and start them in the way of making their 
living from the soil. 

No doubt these three warmhearted women sel- 
dom venture into those parts of the city in which 
misery finds its miserable home. No doubt, too, if 
they did witness conditions that exist in the con- 
gested metropolis even in the best of good times, 
they would realize that there are as worthy objects 
of their generosity right here at home as there are 
in Turkey. 

But it is unpleasant to think that there is so 
much generosity and so much misery so widely 


That view of "honor" which places a pretnium 
upon honesty at gambling, while countenancing 
success in business no matter how it is attained, is 
one of the queerest of humanity's queer vagaries. 

In a thoroughly wholesome and readable little 
book called "Money Hunger," in which John A. 
W'ise Wood flays American standards of business 
integrity, he calls attention to this point, and says: 
"Once it is lodged in the popular mind that it is 

crooked to cheat about a direc^rs' })oard as over a 
card table, as wretchedly m^aijto evade an obliga- 
tion of business as to flee one incurred upon the 
turf, as vile to wrong one s «haf eholders as to sell 
out one's companions in a gcR-ne* as pitifully despic- 
able to pluck the trust w^hich may happen to lie in 
one's hand as to filch from Hhe^ursc one has been 
asked for a moment to hold.-^when these truths 
are grasped then there will 'oc<a»r such a revulsion 
of feeling as shall thereafter exclusively confine 
the practice of commercial immorality, a form -.Qf 
which has become almost an honored prerogative 
of every class, strictly to avowed criminal circles." 

The Paris correspondeq^t of the New York 
Times relates a strange story of the "honor" of a 
y ambler who was yet dishonorable enough to waste 
his life, to give no return to society for his pleas- 
ures and riches, and to die a suicide rather than to 
earn an honest day's pay. 

Ten years ago Count Hansic, a gentleman gam- 
bler of Warsaw, came to Paris with a fortune of 
$500,000 or $1,000,000. He set up a lavish establish- 
ment, set the fashion in wearing apparel and enter- 
tainment, gambled at the fashionable clubs, col- 
lected rare objects of art, associated with savants, 
diph)matists. royalties, and was the acknowledged 
leader of the fastest set. Of course he was spend- 
ing his principal, for his interest would not have 
kept him in clothes. W'hen luck turned he went 
down the scale rapidly. In the days of his prosperity 
he made heavy winnings, but when the tide turned 
he suffered heavy losses. Finally, to cut a long 
story short, he got down to a couple of rooms in a 
mean lodging house, and dropped most of his clubs. 
He refused to borrow money or to accept charity 
from wealthy friends. 

One night a friendly conspiracy was entered 
into by his friends, and a number of wealthy men 
sat down to play with him, resolved to cheat them- 
selves so that he would win. They hoped, in this 
way, to give l»iin a new start in life without hurt- 
ing his pride. 

But after he had won about 500 francs he dis- 
covered what was going on. He pushed his win- 
nings away from him, rushed from the club and to 
his rooms, where he blew out his brains. 

Clearly, from the old false romantic v-iewpoint, 
the count was a "thoroughbred." Schooled in that 
view, he played the game of life according to his 
lights, and in the view of many he will be a hero. 
But in the modern and more materialistic view, he 
would have been more of a hero had he under- 
taken, when his riches were gone, to earn an honest 
living, and to redeem his wasted life by a little 
service to society before the end came. 


Throughout the debate in the senate on the Aid- 
rich currency bill the senators have heard no more 
sound sense and good reasoning from anybody than 
was furnished by Senator Rayner of Maryland. 

He prefaced his remarks by saying that he real- 
ized that the bill would pass, and said that its op- 
ponents have the consolation of knowing that it is 
simply an emergency measure. 

He told the senators that the truth about the 
situation is that "the money in this country is not 
equitably and fairly distributed, and that it is con- 
centrated at points that dominate the banking inter- 
ests of the land, while the people that need the 
money, in the agricultural sections, in the country 
towns, in the mercantile and farming and honest 
business enterprises, are all unable to procure it 
when the necessity arises for its use. All these are 
sacrificed to gratify and appease the demands that 
are concentrated around the financial centers of 
the country." 

"We shall never have any permanent relief until 
we strike at the root of the evil and reform our 
entire banking system from its foundations," he 
continued. "It must be made to work for the inter- 
est of the American people and not for the benefit 
of special interests. Those of the South and West, 
when they want to move their crops, need not 
apply to the banks, because they have no money, 
but must apply to the New York stock exchange." 

Here Senator Rayner pointed out what is clear- 
ly the fundamental evil in the .\merican banking 
system. As The Herald has said, the present sys- 
tem of reserve is designed, cunningly and effec- 
tively, to tilt the financial plane so that the money 
of the country will drain off to Wall street, wh^re 
it can be used in gambling enterprises. 

There is not enough money in the land to keep 
business going, and at the same time to supply the 
gigantic gambling enterprises that are built up as 
a superstructure on the business edifice of the 
country. The reserve system is so arranged that 
money inevitably flows to New York, even though 
it may be greatly needed out in the country. This 
is because interior banks are allowed to deposit 
their reserves in New York, and because New York' 
banks, which get large profits out of call loans in 
Wall street, are able to pay more for it than any 
other reserve center. 

If there is not enough money for both business 
and gambling, and if the banking system is such 
that gambling has the preference, business is cer- 
tain to suffer when the pinch comes, and it is suf- 
fering now. 

The Aldrich bill, far from remedying this con- 
dition, will only tilt the plant a little higher, and 
improve opportunities for gambling in Wall street 
without improving the opportunities for conducting 
legitimate business in the rest of the country. 


Congressman Fowler of New Jersey, addressing 
an audience in Indianapolis last night, said that his 
colleagues "are afraid to act," and declared that 
they "feared the people back home." 

The congressman must be mistaken. If his col- 
leagties really were afraid of the people, they would 
be showing, at this moment, the rnost frantic 
anxiety to do something to carry out the program 
laid down for them by the president. The temper 
of the people is such that there will be little pati- 
ence with do-nothing congressmen this year. They 
can see no good reason why congress should loaf 
through this pre-election session, and leave undone 
things that are so obviously in need of being done. 

So if the congressmen really were afraid of the 
people they would be doing something, and they 
are not doing anything at all. Therefore Mr. Fow- 
ler must be mistaken. They must still linger under 
the delusion that, as of old, they can do as they 
please and count on being re-elected just the same. 

They have been forgiven for inaction and for 
truckling to the big interests so often that you can 
hardly blame them for feeling so confident of 
themselves now. 


Carl Church of Memphis. Tenn.. at 
the L<enox views politics like moat of the 
voters south of the Mason and Dixon 
line. He is for the symbolic mule and 
Auntie I>emocracy to the last. Mr. 
Church believes with the right man at 
the head of the ticket the Solid South 
will be more of a reality than a mere 
byword of the path. He says that most 
Of the Southern slates, or at least some 
of them, will send uninstructed delegates 
to the Democratic convention, for he 
pryfesses to believe that they are hop- 
ing that William Jennings Bryan will 
be ousted from iiis control of the party. 
He says that it is aJjout time someone 
took the mortgage on the parly from 
the hauds of the commoner and re- 
moved the handicap of those two de- 
feats and the memory of 16 to 1 from 
the faithful, who have labored for the 
principles of Jeffersonian government. 

Mr. Church says that Judge Gray or 
Woodrow Wilson would be accepiabie 
candidates to ihe South, as would Gov- 
ernor Johnson. He further says that 
many of the voters are loyal 10 Bryan, 
but the great majority of them are of 
the opinion that the Commoner has been 
before the public eye too long, and of 
all the candidates that could be selected 
by the party he would have ihe Icasl 
ctiance oi being elected. 

The South has not felt the recent 
financial setback in as severe a' form as 
was expected, says Mr. Church. Tlie 
South at the present time is amply pre- 
pared to meet any financial stringency 
that might arise. The old Cavalier d;iys 
of elegant Idleness and magnificent con- 
tempt of lalxjr have long sinco passed 
into history. The industrial age lia.s 
come to the South. In a lesser degree, 
of course, tlian has marked liie progress 
of the North, but it has established in- 
dustries that are flourisliing under the 
new business impetus tliat has taken the 
pltice of the old aversion to commerce 
and thijigs commercial. 

Southern thought is undergoing a rad- 
ical change, says Mr. Ciiureh. 
of the more .Southern latitude, the pe<jple 
of the South will never, he says, have 
quite the hustlo tiiat is possessed by the 
Northerners. Yet Mr. Church says tlial 
a more businesslike way of conducting 
business and a new code of commerce 
has been developed In the South wiliiin 
the past five years. Manufactures and 
industrial plants of every description aie 
making the South into, not only a pro- 
ducing .section of the country, but a 
manufactuiinj; part of the United Smtes 
as well. Of course, the South will never 
rival the North as a manufacturing cen- 
ter. But along this line they are pro- 
gressing. Tixey are improving the rail- 
roads, too. These lines of communica- 
tion have long i)oen the butt of many a 
joke, but Mr. Church says that thl.s 
great drawback to industrial success is 
being remedied. They are improviiia, 
reconstructing and extending many of 
the lines with the result that the effi- 
ciency of the Southern lines lias i>et.ii 
inoerased fully o<J per cent.

V. C. Rohel, at the McKay, advocates 
and earne.stly recommends the imposing 
of a tax upon all the money that goes 
across the big pond with American 
brides. He estimates that about $*J<J.- 
<X»,(KW lias gone to keep the ancestral 
oaks trimmed, the grass in the family 
park mowed and the brass on the em- 
blazoned door bright and shiny, since 
the lord or duke went homo with 
a bunch of boodle— and incidentally, a 
bride — and reported to his fellow liard- 
ups that America was a decued sood 
field for cultivation. 

Mr. Robel looks on this Internatloniil 
match matching as a purely buslnes.s 
proposition. Ambition on one side and 
the need of the cash on the other are 
the impelling motives in his opinion. 
We have a tariff to protect our •infant 
Industries," he says, "why not have 
some means of stopping this great drain

perc^ontage of the lucre tliat is so i-asily 
picked up over here by the fortune- 
hunting scions of out-at-the-heel aris-

Life in Terms of Duty. 

Some years ago I heard a distin- 
guished college professor addre.s3 a 
a body of students on the subject ot 
duty. His main proposition wa.s that 
life consisted of an uninterrupted se- 
ries of inevitable and con.stant duties 
which it is a man's business to per- 
form faithfully and without complaint. 
In the heat of youth 1 revolted at tho 
time frona the doctrine. It seemed to 
me so hard, so inflexible. It left no 
room appat'yntly for pleasures, amuse- 
ments and the easier and lighter side 
of life. With increa.sing y.-ars I have 
come to be a believer in the teaching 
which I once scouted. After all, the 
duty theory of life Is a splendid and 
in.spiring one. 

We are here in this world on pro- 
bation. "Theirs not to reason why, 
theirs but to do and die" is as Impera- 
tive a summons to us a.s it was t<j the 
Three Hundred at Balaklava. Tilings 
are given to u.'^ to do and when we 
have done them to tho best of our 
abilitj' we are to go quickly and cheer- 
fully ti> the next duty. 

"And ever at each period 

He stopped and sang 'Praise God.* 
Then bade again his curls he threw 

And meekly bent to wor kanew." 

And I have come to see how .such a 
theor>- leaves ample room for all the 
de;ir and wholesome and profitable de- 
lights that belong inalienably to hu- 
manity. Dutiv\s are not always hard 
and disagreeable. The duty of a given 
hour may be to give our.^elves un- 
re.servedly to pleasure. Some over- 
worked, worried man or woman who 
j may read these lines needs at once a 
good big dose of recreation and pos- 
.sibly one of frivolity. For a while at 
least, my jaded brother or sister, the 
law is summed up In this command- 
ment: "Thou shalt give thyself a due 
measure of rest and thou .shalt have a 
good time." 

Our theory simplifies life wonder- 
fully. You in the morning and 
the day seems in pro.spect over full 
and very much confused. What shall 
you do first? There is only one duty 
designed for one period of time. You 
are not called upon to do either less 
or more than you can do. Three kinds 
of duties are sure to face you before 
sunset, duties to yourself, to others, 
and to God. You can find out if you 
are patient and teachable and per- 
si.stent enough in what order and with 
what emphasis on a given day these 
duties present themselves. Then you 
can start in quietly and confidently and 
do them and if you do not get them 
all done before night of inter- 
ruptions or invincible obstacles the 
way in which you meet those very 
diversions and hlnGrance.s will be a of your duty-doing. 

How this glorifies life! "I did but 
do my duty, boys," gaspr^d the dying 
color-bearer, "and the dear old flag 
never once touched the ground." That 
is how one soldier on the battlefield 
construed his duty and in times of 
peace, one does the soldier's duty who 
seeks as earnestly to uphold the honor 
of his home, his community, his state. 
Then his name rightly belongs with great saviours of the race who 
for 1900 years have each in his turn 
Imitated him. who, when a boy, said, 
•'I must be about my Father's busi- 
ness," and who, when the shadow of 
tlie cross lay dark on his path reso- 
lutely set his face to go to Jerusalem. 

Ah, Wordsworth was right when h« 
sang in praise of duty: 

"Stern Lawgiver thou dost wear. 
The Godhead's most benignant grao« 

Nor know we anything .so fair 
As is the smile upon thy face."

Minneapolis Journal: Another of those 
much-tooted timb' r suits that grew out 
of the trespass ca.'es, which figured so 
largely In the Dunn campaign, has t)eea 
settled. According to the papers of tha,t 
day and since. $2G/NKt which Mr. Dunn had 
allowed to be "stolen" was to be recov- 
ered to the state. After three years of 
skirmishing, the state's timber board has 
settled this claim for $200, which the de- 
fendant considered cheaper than fighting, 
and whicli would not pay the state's attor- 
ney's fees. Most of the rest of this polit- 
ical buncombe was of the same sort.— 
Duluth News Tribune. 

The foregoing is on a par with most of 
the answers in defense of the Dunn 
timber policy. The case referred to is the 
suit against Bonness & Howe and K. 
Olson, for $2G.267.2S. and it has not been 
settled. One J. Olson, who was connected 
with the taking of a small pait of the tim- 
ber in question, has settled with the state 
for J200. but the .state has made no terms 
with the other defendants, and the case la 
yet to be tried. 

It Is rather late in the dav to accuee 
men of Indulging In political buncomlH) 
because they are trying to enforce the 
laws and collect money for property be- 
longing to the school children of the State. 
Probably the $28,000 already collected on 
this account is also "buncombe." as well 
as twenty-three cases still pending In tlie 
courts and involving $300,000 more.

Decade of Mighty Import to the United States Has 
Been Rounded Out—Results That have Been 


Today completes perhaps the most 
Important decade in the history of tho 
United States. 

Ten years have passed since an ex- 
plosion from the outside sent the 
battleship Maine to the bottom of Ha- 
vana harbor, started a war that wa.s to 
blow Spain froni the New World and 

launched the United States on its new 
ca*eer as a commanJing factor in the 
aftairs of the nations. 

The ten years of the nation's life 
from 1775 to 1785 were important be- 
cause they saw a nation born; the ten 
years froin 1S56 to 1*^65 were important 
l>ecause they witnessed the salvation of 
that nation after one of the most ter- 
rific internecine wars in history, but 
the decade now in its final days, will 
take at least as big, perhaps a bigger, 
place than the two preceding eiwchs of 
notable events because of the immense 
bearing it is likely to have on the fu- 
ture of the republic. 

The Maine went to Cuba "to relieve 
the tension between Spain and the Unit- 
er States, to be a token of the resump- 
tion of friendly relations between the 
two nations." 

The historic letter in which Senor 
Depuy de Lome dealt so insultingly j 
with President McKinley had further j 
enraged a nation already madden-^d j 
over the horrible atrocities perpetrated! 
by the butcher, Weyler, on the iielplessi 
Cubans. Spain speedily withdrew the 
offending diplomat, and a more wel- 
come minister was sent to replace him. { 
Then, to improve the feeling, the Maine 
went to Cuba. 

Perhaps war would eventually have 
come anyway, but undoubtedly the first 
step in the conflict was the innocent 
one of sending the Maine to Havana. 
There was no hostile Intention, for 
President McKinley had been opposed 
to war from the first. 

But when the treachery destroyed a 
mighty battleship in a friendly harbor 
in time of peace, and sent to their 
graves J6») men of the crew, the anger 
of Uncle Sam could have been stayed 
by no power on earth. To the desire to 
help the Cubans to their freedom was 
added the fierce desire for revenge. The 
hand that started the explosion under 
the steel hull of the Maine, no matter 
how malign the motives, ignorantly be- 
came a greater force in the destinies 
of the country than any since Wash- 
ington and Lincoln

of victory the Republicans of Now 
York in their next convention traded 
on his great war reputation and made 
him their candidate for governor, a 
nomination followed by an election. 

He was a satisfactory governor to 
the people, but not to the gang, and 
noting his growing power. Piatt and 
Quay sought to commit him to ob- 
scurity by naming him for the vice 
presidency with McKinley in 1900. 
Tht' unhappy off-taking of the presi- 
dent sent Roosevelt to the White 
House, and in 1904 he went there 
again by the biggest majority ever 
given a candidate for the office. 

The war also started William H. 
Taft on his way to fame, though he 
took no actual part in it. Ten 

years ago he was unknown, but his 
work of restoring order In the Phil- 
ippines disclosed administrative skill 
of such rarity that he has gone from 
preference to preference, and is now 
conceded to be the leading candidate 
for the succession to Roosevelt. 

Dewey, too. might have gone into 
retirement unknown save for his 
minor exploits as a young lieutenant 
in the Civil war, had not the de- 
struction of the Dons at Manila bay 
given him a place iu the American 
gallery of naval heroes beside Paul 
Jone.s, Decatur. Balnbridge, Barry 
and Farragut.

When the Oregon completed its 
wonderful voyage around Cape Horn, 
and dropped anchor with its si.ster 
warship.s, ready to get Into action in 
twenty minutes, Capt. Clark had 
made his place secure in the affec- 
tions of his countrymen, and he 
had a chance to gain further pres- 
tige when in the conflict a few 
weeks later, the American fleet 
under Sampson and Schley .sank the 
ships of Cervera. and rendered the 
outcome of war a virtual certainty. 

Schley is still living, but .-^arapson 
has gone to his final accounting. 

Santiago Harbor ifave Hobson 
chance, and the gallant, if useless, 
ploit of sinking the Merrimac In 
channel in the hope of preventing 
e.scape of the fieet. made the captain 
an idol, and resulted in a frenzy of 
csculatory demonstration when he re-

had hardly sent its message quivering | 
through the frame of the doomed ves- 
sel before the gallant seaman. Bill An- 
thony, a perfect picture of composure 
and discipline, was quietly saluting the 
captain in charge, now Admiral Sigs- 
bee. and announcing: 

"I have the honor to report, sir, that 
the ship is sinking." 

A nation cheered that act of quiet 
heroism, but before the salvoes had 
died out, doughty little Joe Wheeler 
sent a fresh thrill of patriotic joy 
throughout the length and breadth of 
the land by tends ring his services 
to Washington with the announce- 
ment that though on the side of the 
Confederacy in the Civil war. he 
"would fight like hell" for Uncle .Sam 
In the conflict against the Dons. 

This sword was eagerly accepted, 
and the former rebel leader was 
made major general of vjlunteers, U. 
S. A. 

In Washington, foreseeing the con- 
flict, Theodore lioosevelt, then es- 
teemed rather than loved as a .some- 
what bookish and pedantic student 
of politics, famed for his devotion 
to civil service reform, and suspected 
by the party regulars of being in- 
oculated with the reform virus, had 
been doing yeoman .ser\'ice as as- 
sistant .secretary of the navy in 
achieving that condition of prepared- 
ness which was afterwards to reap 
its fruit at Manila and Santiago. 

He adorned the post. He filled 
it with credit to his country, but 
the spirit of strenuosity told him 
that the field was the place for him. 

The Rough Riders were organized, 
with Roosevelt as colonel, and from 
the minute he donned the slouch hat 
and buckram of the troop, he had 
started his ride to the White House. 
A nation cheered the former student 
as he dashed up San Juan hill.

Maine will outlast a century. 

Already the results have been stu-

quarter, nas been abandoned never to 
be resumed. 

The acquisition of Cuba, Porto Rico,

fairer land, no better clime, in our 
hemisphere. The soil is generous and 
ti.ere is yroduced in prolific abundance 
corn, oats, many of the grasses, cotton 
vegetables, fruits, and melons. It 
alwunds in springs, some fresh some 
mineral, some hot, some cold, and when 
the virtues of these waters shall be we.l 
kno«n to the wealthy classes of our 
entire population, the Fourth Georgia 
district will become a perpetual healiii 
and pleasure resort during each and 
every season of the year. It can be 
made an immense game preserve, 
while the tens of thousands of springs 
of pure, fresh water form rivulets, 
brooks, and creeks, abounding in game 
fish of many species. There, too. the 
flowers are from Christmas to Christ- 
mas. It could be turned into a "- 
dairy farm. Surpassing anything of 
that kind in New York or Wisconsin, 
llilnios, or Iowa. And yet the land 
would be valuable in New England for 
its vast deposits of granite and marble 
if the soil were absolutely barren. Why 
the farmers of Iowa emigrate to Can- 
ada and voluntarily become subjects of 
Edward VII rather than go to Georgia 
and acquire cheap lands susceptible of 
more diversified crop rotation than 
even Iowa affords is a mystery, for the 
northern counties of the Fourth Georgia 
have even a smaller percentage of 
negro population than some of the 
counties of Illinois round about <:alro. 
The Georgia peach and the Georgia 
waterlelon attain to their excellence 
thei-e, and there's millions in them. 

Again, the white population of the 
Fourth Georgia can show a greater per- 
centage of pure blood than any 
other constituency In Anierioa, or In 
old England it.self. That is why the 
cotton they produce is the very best 
long staple, and that accounts for the 
fact that the Fourth Georgia grows 
Its own corn and fats Its own pork. 
Moreover, every pound of cotton grown 
in the ten counties is fashioned into 
the finished fabric in mills within their 
borders, the oapilal stocks of which are 

owned at home.

that gained him success in the state 
courts, superior and inferior, and In 
the federal courts. 

Adamson. like all Southern genlemen, 
t(X)k a keen intert-st in politics. The 
policy of the Republican party in the 
days of reconstruction left no election 
to any man of the cotton states, who 
had a spark of self-respect, as to the 
party with which he should affiliate. 
He was bound to be a Democrat or a 
Pariah. Sir Robert Walpole never said 
that every man had his price. What he 
did say was that "Some men havd 
their price." The history of the seced- 
(ing South vindicates the grim old 
statesman— some hundreds had their 
price; countless thousands had no price. 
Had Lincoln survived, or had Chase 
succeeded Andy John.son in the White 
House, there is little doubt that there 
would have been a formidable, and, 
what is better to the purpose, a re- 
spectable Republican party in the co\.- 
ton states, but Sumner. Stevens, Wade, 
Morton, Chandler and that set made it 
so that to be a Republican in any one 
of the seceding states, other than in 
the mountains of Tennessee, a man had 
to cease to walk on his legs and crawl 
on his. belly. 

Hence, the South remained Demo- 
cratic aa much from Inexorable neces- 
sity as from sincere cortvicfion. Adam- 
son stuck closely to the bar. however, 
and except a term as city judge, he 
held no office until 1392, when he was 
chosen presidential elector on the 

Cleveland and Stevenson ticket. In 1896. 
at the age of 41, h« was returned to the 
Fifty-fifth congress, and has been five 
times re-elected, a tenure on the seat 
unprecedented in that district, where 
the vicious practice of "rotation in 
office" so long maintained. There is no 
more sense in rotation in office than 
there is in rotation in the guilds. As 
well say that as soon as a man gets to 
be a good shoemaker, he should drop 
that trade and turn blacksmith, as to 
deoree that when a man has well served 
a^ constituency in congress he should 
b6 made to take up something else. 
Your new member is at great disad- 
vantage, unless he has gained eminence 
before he gets to congress, as was the 
case with David Dudley Field, and as 
is the case with Philander C. Knox. 
The old member, by sheer force of .seni- 
ority, gets desirable committee assign- 
ments. The rule i-a that the new mem- 
ber mu^t take years "to spell up" to a 
place where he can be of practical use 
in the real work of congresssional 
solo n ism. 

Congress cannot l>e, and if It could, 
it will not be; stamp.ded by a confla- 
gration of the Potomac river, a piece 
of Incendiary work perpetrated by a 
new member, even if that member were 
a Tom Marshall. William J. Bryan 
found that out. though he did set 
Lake Mlcnlgan afire and stampeded a 
Democratic national convention after 
he left congress. The first time I evei 
saw Tom Reed was during the life of 
the Forty-sixth congress. hLs second 
term. Nobody then supposed that 
there was in him the making of half 
the man he l>©came, and that he would 
not have been had rotation held g'>od 
In Maine. The same was true of Dlng- 
I ley and Boutelle. and is true of Hale 
I and Frye. Experience in the legisla- 
ture is what discipline and drill are in 
the army. 

Adamson is one of the most popular 
men, per.sonally. In congres.s — In the 
class with Oilte James on the Demo- 
cratic side, and Fred Landis on the 
Republican. Everybody halls him as 
•Charlie." It is a habit Georgians 
have — "Bob" Toombs, "Ben" Hill, 
"Alec" Stephens, "Joe" Brown, "Jim" 
Griggs, and so on. This diminutive of 
a Christian name Is usually a tribute 
to the heart and the good fellowship 
of the man. "Give me a match, Joe," 
said the little Gauvouche of Penn.syl- 
vanla avenue, and who needed a bet- 
ter insight into Joe Blackburn's char- 
acter — its democratic openness and 
open-hearted fellowship — than that 
! familiarity discloses. 

It was on the Dingley tariff that 
Adamson made his maiden effort, and 
it was not only a characteristic speech, 
but an able argument. John Sharp 
Wijiams never flew at the throat of a 
subject more accurately or more vi- 
ciously. It was no such speech as 
Carlisle's against the McKinley tariff, 
and It was even more radically differ- 
ent from Aldrich's in favor of it. 

• • • 

One day the great Toombs made 
one of his terrible assaults on a -1)111 of 
Judah P. Benjamin to dispose of some 
public lands In Louisiana. Benjamin 
began his reply with this: "It is evi- 
dent that the senator from Georgia Is 
not familiar with the principles of the 
civil law that maintains in Louisiana," 
to which Toombs roared In retort: 
"That is possibly true, and If a fa- 
miliar knowledge of It incapacitates 
me to recognize stealing when it Is 
right before my eyes, I pray God I 
may always remain as Ignorant of the 
civil law as I am this blessed minute." 

Adamson did not understand the 
philosophies of the tariff as expounded 
by Adam Smith, the free-trader, and 
George Bentham, the protectionist. 
Few do; but, like Toombs, Charley 
distinctly saw the stealing in the bill 
and pointed it out In some delightfully 
blunt passages. It was a most suc- 
cessful beginning, and Adamson from 
that day had the respect of congress 
as well as the good will of every mem- 
ber who made his acquaintance.

When he came here he succeeded 
In retaining in their positions several 
ladies whom Mr. Cleveland had ap- 
pointed postmasters in his district. Ha 
defeated the nominations of four negro 
postmasters out of five in this district. 
He broke the red tape of the circum- 
locution office, had the Chattahoochee 
river cleared of obstructions and thus 
gave the mills of Columbia cotton 
weeks sooner than they otherwise 
would have received It. Later he got 
an adequate appropriation in the river 
and harbor bill for that important 
stream. His popularity was as great 
with the heads of departments as It 
was with his associates on the floor, 
and to please him many Democrats

If It does not cure. 

It Is in two forma: No. 1 that can bo

wish to be cured. It is not only tha 
most reliable treatment known, but It Is 
also the most economical as It costs only

Mme. Marcella Sembrichs appearance 
in Duluth Tuesday, Marcli 31, will be one 
of the most imix>riant musical events 
tliat the year will offer. 

In this connection it is interesting to 
read what Alfred 13runeau wrote after 
hearing tlie great prima donna in Paris: 

"God bo praised; I am 30 years 
younger since Saturday night," declared 
the brilliant French writer. "Mme. 
Sembrich sang to me, it seemed to me 
that £he sang to me alone, so intently 
did I listen. She was incomparable. 
.She recalled to me the sweetest souve- 
nir of the glorious times of tlie Theatre 
Italien, wiien the greatest stars were 
shining. Ah, Madame, I am one of the 
oldest musical critics in France, and 
come to tell you, with the greatest sin- 
cerity, that in the whole of my life I 
never felt a greater pleasure and a more 
complete admiration than I did last 
night. You are a genuine wonder, Ma- 
dame, you are enchanting, but you knew 
all tills by the enthusiastic reception 
that the public gave you unanimously."

kmonq the Plants 

Tree agents are around now so- 
liciting orders and we want to make 
a few suggestions. 

^^^ly not order a few useful things 
in the way of fruits as well as or- 
namental things for the garden? 
There are a few fruits that will do 
well in Duluth, and from Inquiries 
made of St. Paul growers, we will 
give the names of those safe to 
plant here. First, the crab apple; 
take Lyman's Prolific or Florence, 
these are the best; the Transcendent 
is too apt to blight, so don't use it; 
these trees will prove both orna- 
mental and useful and you will get 
enough fruit for home use in three 
years, and crab apple Jelly Is good. 

Currants do well here. Our 
choice would be Prince Albert among 
the reds, white grape for dessert, 
and Lee's prolific for black. Of 
course, they will be bothered by the 
currant worm, but one ounce of 
hellibore to three gallons of water 
sprinkled on the bushes easily dis- 
poses of this pest. It will also kill 
the worms on the gooseberries, and 
there Is another good fruit. Pearl 
is a pale green, and a beauty for 
table and cooking uses and hardy, 
and Josselyn or Red Jacket we all 
know and like. These are shallow- 
rooted plants and should not be 
stirred deeply during the summer 

Next come the rapsberrles. Of 
these the King would be our choice, 
as It does well here. Strawberry 
plants had better be obtained right 
here, for they .start too early farther 
south for our planting.

To Say Nothing of Two 

Wives Slavery Poet 


Lynn, Mass, Feb. 15.— After sixteen en- 
gagements and two marriages In his ardu- 
ous quest for his "golden girl," John W. 
Hutchinson, the octogenarian "Bard of 
High Rock and famous poet of slavery 
days," declared he had found his real af- 
fiinity, when he met Ellen F. Wetherell, a 
buxom Nova Scotia lassie, who says he 
made fast and furious love to her. 

For about six months Hutchinson was 
sure of tlie alTlnity racket. Then he says 
he found Miss Wetherell in a most em- 
barrassing position in the arms of a 
"young man who couldn't have been more 
than 20," declares the aged bard. 

"And I quit right there, sir; it's all or 
nothing with nie. I'll divide my love with 
no one, sir," insisted Mr. Hutchinson. But 
the "golden girl" of his dreams, as Mr. 
Hutcliinson termed her in half a hun- 
dred letters she made public later, didn't 
quit, when Bhe hadn't seen him since she 
left home two years ago. And, of course, 
she couldn't help it, if most of the clothes 
she had on wasn't very much,, not much 
more tlian a nightie, in fact, for wasn't it 
late at night, and could she help It if he 
didn't come before then'/ No, indeed, she 
wasn't to blame, and she wasn't going to 
quit, not for a minute. 

When » Bard Hutchinson Insisted, she 
promptly went to court to see if there was 
any justice for a poor girl who was blam- 
td for letting a cousin kiss her. And for 
the next two months the people of Massa- 
chusetts were regaled with tlie letters of 
a poet to "the golden girl of his dreams," 
Of her Immeasurable superiority to the 
"sixteen girls I've sampled in my life and 
the two wives I took in a vain endeavor 
to find my true affinity," as Bard Hutch- 
inson poetically put it. The poet stood 
that, and Miss Wetherell came back with 
a promise of some more letters that are 
real spicy. 

Then Hutchinson threw up his hands. 
Tliey must have been real tropical, for, 
rather than have them made public, his 
lawyer turned over to Miss Wetherell a 
certified check for $11,000, and she turned 
over to hiin a big bundle of letters. All 
of which was much to the disappointment 
of the people of Massachusetts.

per cent bonds, the largest lot ever

which, though oversubscribed four 
times,, brought the city about 102.063.

Seneca, Kan., Feb. 15.— Herbert Jor- 


After Facial Massage, Creams and 
Beauty Doctors Had Failed. 


Trouble, worry and ill health brought 
me deep lines and wrinkles. 1 realized 
that they not only greatly marred my 
appearance and made me look much 
Older, but that they would greatly in- 
terfere with my success, because «t 
woman's success, either socially or fi- 
nancially, depends verly largely on her 
appearance. Tiie homely woman, with 
deep lines and furrows in .ler face, 
must fight an unequal battle with h«r 
younger and better looking sister. 

I therefore bought various brands of 
cold cream and skin foods and mas- 
saged my face with most constant regu- 
larity, hoping to regain my former ap- 
pearance. But the wrinkles simply 
would not go. On the contrary, they 
seemed to get deeper. Next 1 went to 
a beauty specialist, who told me she 
could easily rid me of my wrinkles, t 
paid my money and took the treat- 
ment. Sometimes 1 thought they got 
less, but after spending all the money 
I could afford for such treatment I 
found I still had my wrinkles. So I 
gave up In despair, and concluded I 
must carry them to my grave. One 
day a friend of mine who was versed 
in chemistry made a suggestion, and 
this gave me a new idea. I Immedi- 
ately went to work making experi- 
ments and studying everything I could 
get hold of on the subject. After sev- 
eral long months of almost numberlesa 
trials and discouragements, I finally 
discovered a process which produced 
most Astonishing results on my 
wrinkles in a single night. I was de- 
lighted beyond expression. I tried my 
treatment again, and lo, and behold, 
my wrinkles were practically gone. A 
third treatment— three nights in all — 
and I had no wrinkles and my face was 
as smooth as e.ver. I next offered my 
treatment to some of my immediate 
friends, who used it with surprising re- 
sults, and I have now decided to give 
It to the public. I will send further 
particulars to any one who Is inter- 
ested, absolutely free of charge. I use 
no cream, facial massage, face stcam- 
ings or so-called skin foods; there Is 
nothing to inject and nothing to injure 
the skin. It is an entirely new dis- 
covery of my own. and so simple that 
you can use it without the u-i.iwi -^ 
of your most intimate friends. You 
apply the treatment at night and go to 
bed. In tho morning, lol the wonder- 
ful transformation. People often write 
me it sounds too good to be true. Well,

ELIZABETH AND THE' SWAN. a Fairy story by Maud Walker 

There was a young mlssle from Tbrnms, 
Whose tinjfrs were flumsy as tbuniba; 

And her pen, 30 I'm tol<l.

suspended from a picture nail, about four 
feet fri)m the floor. About the handle of 
the hatchet lie as many very n.trrow

ribbons must he of e.iual length -aaj 
about 10 yards long, and only one end of

sofas, around chairs and through books,

of the ribbon are attached the names of 
the guests, and each participant In the

thus attached. 

When all have been tjlven their ribbons 
the signal to start Is sounded by a bell

start at once to follow the ribbons which 
■will lead them to the coveted hatchet. 
But ns the ribbons have como In a most 
confusing way, the guests tlnd themselves 
much tangled up. crossing each other's 
paths in a strange lal.yrii'th, so Intricate 
at times that much fun Is had and much

nttle Elizabeth was an orphan. At the 
time of iier parents' death her aunt — a 
very crns.s and selfish old woman— took 
her to her home, promising her food and 
clothing for a certain amount of work la 
return. The work proved plentiful and 
heavy, but the food was smull in quan- 
tity and poor in quality, and the clothing 
that was given to the little orphan to | 
wear was some rastoff garmenta of a 
former little servant whose lot had been I 
so hard that she had rim away, leaving 
her old rasH behind her. .\nd thus Kliza- 
beth found herself dressed In dirty and 
ragged clothes as soon as her own little 
wardrobe was worn out. And with the 
constant work It did not take long to 
ruin her pretty frocUs that her dear 
mother had made for her. 

And as the weeks wore on Elizabeth 
grew ihlii. pale and weak from the ef- 
fects of lieavy and constant work and 
InsufUrieut food. And never an hour had 
she to play, for ns soon as her daily 
tasks were completed .she was so weary 
and slce!)y that she would go to her cold, 
cheerless attic room and creep into the 
miserable bed that had beeu occupied by 
the former little servant. 

One nfirht as Elizabeth lay slumbering 
and shivering In the dark room a voice 
whiapercd In her ear: "Come, awake and 
barken to me. I have something to tell 

Elizabeth opened her eyes and was sur- 
prised to see standing there a beautiful 
little girl. She was comfortably dressed 
In nice wirm garments trimmed with fur. 
She bold a silver lamp In her hand, and 
Its brilliant tlames li^'hted up tlie ml.ser- 
able room, showing its aged and rotting 
celling and broken bits of old furniture. 

"Who are you, beautiful and happy lit- 
tle glrlV aslced Eiizabi-th in a voice of 
surprise. ••.\re you a fairy? If so, please 
take me away from this awful place. I 
shall die soon If obligetl to remain here."' 
-No, I am not a fairy, but the little 
girl who used to be a servant In this 
house. One cold night ia.^t winter— just 
about a year ago -I became so miserably 
unhappy that I determined to run away 
from tuis wicked old woman and this 
bouse, which was nothing more than a 
jail to m-?, I stole out while the old 
woman was asleep In her easy chair be- 
side the great and beautiful fire that al- 
ways Itnrns for her in the library. Down 
to the river I crept, not hoping for any- 
thing save to get away, away, away ns 
far as I could before I should drop Id 
the snow to I went to the river 
bank and sa.t down beneath some shrubs 
to get shelter from the fearful winter 
blast that was sweeping over the hills, 
and which bit «ue to the bone. As 1 sat 
there a strange thing happened, a thing 
which 1 shall not tell you about, for I 
want you to experience the same delight- 
ful suri)rise that I experienced. But this 
much 1 want to tell you: I have never, 
never regretted the moment when I vcn- 
turtiJ forth from this 1 have 
found happiness and a lovely home. Go

"Yes. yes," eagerly replied Elizabeth, j Should she go to the river? What if 

her pretty childish eyes wide with sur- nothing good should happen and she out

a flutter. "I have seen that lovely clump \ the snow, for her clothing was so thin

'•Well, do as I bid you, IT yon would be |

and her shoes full of holes. But was this 
place to be preferred to a more sudden 
death? Here she was dying by Inches,

that window do you get from that cold 
old bed and wrap your rags about you as 
securely as .vou can and go to the spot I 
have told you about. And I assure you 
that you shall not have long to wait. 
Something very strange, but very splen- 
did, will happen to you. And now I 
must be going, for I have told you all 
that is necessary. Till I see you tomor- 
row, good-by." 

The little girl blew out the lamp flame 
and disappeared, but whether she went 

to the shelter of the clump of evergreen 
bush and wait— wait! If nothing hap- 
pened—well, she would nftt be any the 
worse off. Her bed was almost ns cold 
as the out-of-doors. Her room was like 
Ice. She could only freeze, anyway. 

Taking her thickest garment she wrapped 
It about her and <Tept down stairs. Just 
as she reached the front door and opened 
It to pass out she heard her old aunt's 
voire railing from the library: 

••Who dares to go prowling about my 

woman's threats. At the first sound of 
her voice she hurried out of doors and 
softly closed the door behind her. Then 
to the river she flew, her poor little half- 
bare feet scarcely touching the ground as 
she sped over it. She was sore afraid 
that her old aunt might go Into the hall 
and look from the window and see her 
running away. But she knew that the 
only other servant in the house was an 
old woman who slept like a log, and 
whom It was almost impossible to rouse 

a huge swan, gliding over the ire as 
though swimming. It came nearer and 
nearer to where Elizabeth sat, and when 
opposite her It stopped and turned Its 
head in her direction. Then the most 
marvelous thing happened. Up went one 
of the giant swan's wings and out stepped 
as dainty a fairy as one could wish to 
behold. Straight up the bank to where 
Elizabeth sat came the fairy, smiling and 
beckoning to the wondering chlbi. Eliza-

thin all- Elizabeth did not know. And 
for a long time Elizabeth lay In the dark 
room, her eyes closed. Presently she sat 
up with a start. The moon was beaming 
full In her race. It was tlnse for her to 
creep from the house. But— had she been 
dreaming? Or had there really been a 

you little sneak thief. What are you do- 
ing out of your room at this time of 
night? It's 9 o'clock. Come here this in- 
stant. And if you can't give an account 
of your stealing down stairs In this way 
I'll heat you, I will' 

as one dead. So it would take the wicked 
aunt sometime to rouse the old woman; 
then it would take the old servant some- 
time to unilerstand that she was to dress 
and go after the runaway. And consider- 
ing all this delay Elizabeth knew that 
she would have time to reach the river 
and <o hide beneath the clump of shrub- 
bery. Besides, whatever was to happen 

Oh, how cozy and warm it was there. 
Soft feathers wrapped her about and the 
cold soon left her limbs, and she fell 
Into a sweet sleep, the little fairy sitting 
beside her, smiling. 

And how they did travel! The swan 
fairly glided over the Ice with the swift- 
ness of the wind. But so soon Elizabeth 
fell asleep that she took no notice of the 

might happen before the* old serving I time that passed. Indeed, so peacefully 

woman came after her. 

As soon as she reached the bank of the 
river little Elizabeth found the clump of 
evergreen shrubbery and sank beside It, 
drawing her thin wrap about her, for she 
was shaking with the cold. 

Scarcely had she taken her place by the 
shrub when to her amazement she saw 

But Elizabeth did not hear all the old I coming on the surface of the frozen river

did she slumber that no dreams came to 
her, and she felt only the sweetness of 
rest and warmth. 

When at last Ellzal»eth awoke she found 
herself In a cozy room, all furnished In 
pluk and white. Beside a window sat a 
sweet-faced lady of middle age. At the 
moment of Elizabeth's waking she was 
looking out of the window watching a 
floc'k of birds that tiad just alighted to 
fe<*d upon some crumbs she had evidently 
thrown out for them, for In her lap she 
held a great bowl full of crumbed bread. 
Aud as Elizabeth watched her she kept 
thnnvlug handfuis of the crumbs from the 
window, smiling as the birds scrambled 
to get them. 

Having fed the birds to their fill the 
lady rose and came softly towards the 
bed In which Elizabeth lay. "Ah, arc you 
awake, little one?" And as she asked 
the question she bent over Elizabeth and 
took her hand, gently stroking It. 

■How oanie 1 here?" asked Elizabeth, 
I'loking about her. 

•"You were found half-frozen in the 
snow last night. One of my servants was 
out hunting rabbits and came across you 
on the hank of the river. Instead of 
hunting about among the bouses that bor- 
der the river for your home he put you In 
his sleigh, wrapped you snugly 1" » '"^ 
r>)be aud brought you to me. And how 
miic-h I should love to have you for my 
own little girl, for I have no children of 
my own, and my heart has a place for a 
dear little daughter. But, come, dearie, 
tell me where you live and what your 
Uame is." 

Slowly Eliza»)eth told her story, not 
omitting the visit of the little girl to her 
attic bedroom and her advice. And then 
she told of how she had gone to the river 
and how a great swan had come with a 
fairy hidden beneath its wing. And how 
she -Elizabeth- had gone with the fairy; 
but whither she did not know. 

•Ah, then you may be my little daugh- 
ter, for the fairy and the swan l)rought 
you to me," said the good lady, kissing 
and embracing Elizabeth. "And as soon 
as you are able to go out we shall see a 
lawyer about the matter, for I shall make

you mine by adoption. And that wicked 
old aunt shall never— never get her hands 
on you again. We'll see to that." 

The following week Elizabeth's good 
new mother went to call upon the aged 
and cruel old aunt, but she found that 
the wicked old woman had caught cold oa 
the night of Elizabeth's leave-taking and 
had suffered a .severe attack of pneumonia 
which had taken her away from the field 
of her w^ickedness. She had failed to 
rouse the old servant sutfldently to forc« 
b'T to run out In search of Elizabeth, and 
striking the defenseless old servant a 
terrible blow had set out herself in search 
of the runaway. And the consequence of 
her wickedness was that she forfeited her 
life, which was a worthless one. 

And now there was no reason why 
Elizal)eth should not be adopted by the 
sweet, motherly woman who took her into 
her home and her heart and loved her 
dearly, being deeply loved In return by 
little Elizabeth.

Charlie Spooner and his sister Aggie 
went into the big grove half a mile from 
their home to get a tree. They were 
bTiildlng a bridge across a little brook 
that ran through the garden, and as they 
wanted a nice long log, one which would 
reach across the brook, they decided 
there was but one way to obtain It — to 
go into the grove and cut it down. 

Charlie carried the hatchet and saw 
and Aggie carried herself. Of course, 
that was quite load enough for Aggie, 
for she was only six years old, and half 
a mile is a long walk, when it leads 
through a deep meadow, full of last 
year's grass stubble. But Charlie, being 
10 years old. was quite a big man and 
as strong as most boys of 11. He could 
have carried an ax instead of a hatchet 
had he been the owner of such a tool. 
But his tool chest contained no ax, and 
a nice, sharp-I)laded hatchet had to 
answer the purpose. 

"Ah. here's a fine, straight tree about 
the size we wantl" exclaimed Charlie.

"It'll reach clean across the brook." 

The tree in question was a small, 
bushy one, and stood some distance from 
any others. Also, It did not look like a 
forest tree, but resembled some of the 
trees in the big orchard back of the 
Spooner's house. 

••Well, brother, let's cut It down," said 
Aggie. "Shall I help you?" 

••No, you sit over In that cozy nook 
between those old stumps. You see, 
there's a pile of soft dead leaves there 
for a seat, and as the snow was all 
melted off days and days ago the leaves 
are nice and dry. See how warm the sun 
shines there? W'y, It's just like a spring 
day here in the edge of the grove. And 
mamma was afraid we'd catch cold down 
here. If she could but be here she'd say 
the summer Is coming over the hills. See, 
the buds are filling the trees now." 

"Yen, and I do believe I heard a bee 
buzzing!" cried Aggie. Then she sank 
down to rest In the mass of soft I'^nves. 
At the same moment Charlie began to use 
his hatchet on the bark of the pretty tree. 
But after making the second cut — or, as 
he afterwards expressed it. Just after be 
had drawn the -first drop of blood from 
the little tree's side— there fell on his 
ear the same sound which Aggie had mis- 
taken for the hum of a bee. But It 
sounded more like the tuoan of a human 
being in distress or pain than like a bee 

Charlie put his hatchet down and looked 
about In awe. "Did you hear that noise?" 
he asked Aggie, who was sitting bolt up- 
right and straining her ears to listen. 

"Yes, I heard it two times," declared 
Aggie. "What on earth can It be, broth- 

"It Is I, the little cherry tree that you 

have come to kill," spoke a faint voice. 
Charlie and Aggie both heard It dis- 
tinctly, and were arcordingly much 
amazeil, not to say a wee bit frightened. 
To hear a voice >.'oming from a tree was. 
Indeed, such an unheard of thing that It 
was enough to make them think they 
were asleep and dreaming. 

"Hit me, sister, so's I can see If I'm 
awake," said Charlie. "Geme, hit me 
go«)d and hard." 

Aggie did as bid, and ImJIcted a sharp, 
stinging slap on the sld* of Charlie's 
face. "Gee!" yelled ChaMle. "I guess 
I'm awake all right. Say, sis, you've got 
a mighty strong right hanl." And Char- 
lie rubl)ed tenderly the burning spot on 
his cheek. 

"You said for me to hit good and hard," 
defended Aggie. "But- wliat was that 
talking? Was it— was It— that tree?" 

••It was this tree," came the mysteri- 
ons little voice. "And you need have no 
fear of me. little ones. It Is I who have 
cause to l)e afraid of you. See that ugly 
sharp blade on the ground! You have 
come to cut me down wtth It. And al- 
ready you have hurt my side a bit, al- 
though the hurt Is 30 slight that If it la 
not Increased I shall quickly recover. But 
will you listen to my story, little ones? 
I have never had the power to speak be- 
fore, and now that voire has been given 
to me I must plead for my life. In so 
doing I shall have to tell you of my life, 
my parents, my ancestry." 

"Oh, then you hav.> a family tree?" 
And Charlie, all enthusiasm, did not 
laugh at his own wit. He was never 
more ^lerlous In his young life. 

"Yes, I have a family tree." responded 
the voice. "And as fine a one as can be 

traced in ail this laud. I came from the 
most celebrated cherry tree that ever had 

At this Aggie came closer to hear all 
that the voice said. Her eyes were big 
and full of question. And when the voice 
.said It came from the most celebrated 
ch>^rry tree that ever grow she at once 
recalled a story of George Washington 
that her mamma had just told her a 
little while ago. 

"Ah. good little tree," cried Aggie; 
"then you must be some kin to the cherry 
tree that George Washington cut down." 

"Sure!" And Charlie became more In- 
terested in the words spoken Iiy the 
strange voit*e. "But," he added Instantly, 
••you couldn't be a descendant of that 
cherry tree, for George Washington killed 

"No, he did not kill the roots," ex- 
plained the voice. "He cut away the 
little tree, which was no larger than your 
wrist. But the root still lived and sent 
up another tree, one which grew and 
grew. And many were the basketfuls of 
cherries that were gathered oflt that tree 
for use In the home of the first president 
of this country." 

"Oh, how wonderful!" cried Charlie and 
Aggie in a voice. "Come, tell us more of 
your ancestors." 

"Well, I shall be brief, for my voice is 
growing weak," said the little tree. 
"Now. to begin: The tree that grew 
from the roots ;>f the •hatchet* cherry tree 
was a fine one. During the last of its 
life some of the Washington kinfolka

some of the cherries for the seed. These 
cherries were planted in no less than 
five states, and each cherry pit sprouted

and grew. From one of these five fami- 
lies I have descended In unbroken line. 
But here you find me In a wild wood of 
forest trees, accompanied by none of my 
kind. It happened this way: One day 
while I was clinging In the form of a 
rli)e cherry to one of ray mother's limbs 
along came a group of children, carrying 
a basket. 'Oh, we must have some of 
those red cherries for our picnic!' they 
cried. And at once they began to gather 
all that their basket would hold. I was 
one of the first to be taken, for I was 
full and ros.v. 'My. what a juicy fel- 
low!' exclaimed the little boy who gath- 
ered me. 

"Well, that same afternoon we— the 
basketful of <herrie8 — were all brought 
to this spot In the grove, where the 
children held a picnic. That happened 
before either of you were born." 

"Oh, 80 long ago as that?" exclaimed 
Aggie, who felt so very old. 

"Well, after their luncheon-^-the chil- 
dren's I mean— they threw the crumbs 
and cherry pits away. I fell Into a soft 
spot, where leaf mold soon gathered me 
to Itself, biding me from sight. What 
ever became of the other cherry pits I 
do not know. For a long time I lay In 
that leaf mold. It grew damp and more 
solid. One day something heavy pressed 
upon me, driving me deeper Into the 
mold, and eventually I found myself 
burled in soft earth. I suppose someone 
walking through the forest had stepped 
upon me and had unconsciously planted 
me In rich soil. 

"Well, all that winter I lay hidden 
there, but I was not Idle. I swelled 
and burst, throwing forth little green 
sprouts. Early In the spring I thrust 
myself through the earth, and the sun

me. The fruit I have borne has been 
very small and sour. I know that It la 
so, for one day two boys came through 
the grove and picked some of the fruit 
from my limbs. They made faces and 
spat out the cherries, saying they were 
\'tery sour. But that's because I lack 
cultivation. Now, could I be trans- 
planted in yo'-- garden, In rich earth, 
I'd show what fine cherries I could bear 
for you." 

"Then you are lonely here?" asked 
Charlie. But the voice did not an.swcr. 
"Well, you shall be transplanted in the 
spring," said Charlie. "Will that please 
you?" But agalu no response from Vb§

"It's voice Is gone," whispered Aggie. " 
"But we know what it wants. Come, 
get your saw and hatchet and let's go 
home and tell papa and mamma all 
about It. And, brother dear, please don't 
j cut down any trees. They may all b« 
; cherry trees from the great one that 
grew lu George Washington's orchard." 

"Oh, only cherry trees could come from 
that." explained Charlie. "But never — 
never shall my hatchet touch a cherry 
tree. And we'll have this beautiful little 
tree transplanted in our garden, and 
we'll call It the George Washington." 

"Yes, an' only you and I shall ever eat 
the iherries that grow on it," suggested 
Aggie. "We'll have mamma make a bug* 
cherry pie for us -a pie what will laat 
a whole day." 

And Charlie, with his hatchet and saw 
over bis shoulder, and Aggie beside him, 
went homeward, whistling a merry tune. 
And when their mother heard their storj 
she laughed and said: 

"Why, Isn't that strange! And this ll

Duluth Stockholders in 

Mexican Company to 

Hold Meeting. 

A battle for the control of the min- 
ing properly of the United Mining & 
^lexlcan company, which may involve 
Thomas W. Lawson, will probably be 
begun at a mass meeting of the Du- 
luth stockholders, which will be held 
In Flautens hall next Wednesday 

There are said to be about 600 
Btockholders in the company in Du- 
luth, and they claim that they have 
been given a shabby deal by .some of 
the directors and the superintendent 
of the company. A. .A. Page. 

It is claimed that Page, who is said 
to be backed by Thomas W. Lawson. 
aecured control of the property, and 
the stockholder.*; claim that they are 
not being fairly treated in the matter. 
or securing their .share of the benetits. 

Th<.- property is located at Jalisco, 
Mexico. It is a gold and silver prop- 
osition, and large blocks of the stock 
are held in Duluth. It is claimed to 
be a valuable property, and the Du- 
luth f^tockholders may decide to make 
a light for their interests. 



L. W. Hill Says Need for 

Special Improvements 

is Light. 

Gives Inference That Su- 
perior Work is Indef- 
initely Suspended. 

L. W. Hill, president of the Great 
Northern railway, who is In the city 
today to attend the annual meeting of 
the Shattuck-Arizona Mining com- 
pany, which Is being held this after- 
noon, says there is no immediate 
prospect of any special improvements 
for the Head of the Lakes, so far as 
his road is concerned, owing, it i.s to 
be Inferred, to a generally quiet situ- 
ation in the railroad world now. 

"Improvements?" echoed Mr. Hill, 
when asked regarding the matter. 
"Xo very big ones are in sight just 
now. We are getting along very nice- 
ly the way we are. Shop.s in Superior? 
We haven't any need of them at pres- 
ent. That being the case. It hardly 
would be wise to build, would it? 

"There Is quite a contrast between 
this winter and last, in point of busi- 
ness transacted by the railroads. We 
are better equipped now than ever be- 
fore to handle traffic, especially so in 
view of the exceptionally fine weather 
that has prevailed this .season. Last 
year, on top of the abnormal rush of 
business, the roads were up against 
very bad conditions in the way of 
snow and cold weather, and were 
thereby seriously handicapped. It is 
different this winter, and conditions 
for railroading are ideal. The trains 
are running on time, and patrons cer- 
tainly have no cause for complaint on 
the service rendered."

Walker's copper letter 
Boston Commercial says 

"The price of copper is declining. Lake 
JS no\y about la^g to 13^ cents, and elec- 
trolytic 13'4 to VSi/i cents per pound Dur- 
ing the past ten days there have been 
almost^ rio new enquiries from consum- 
cr.s Evidently the Roosevelt message 
ana the laft and Bryan speeches were 
wet blankets for the reviving confl- 
uence which was making its appearan(H. 
in the manufacturinK world. Perhans 
the president is misunderstood; but 
liowever that may be, his most recent 
utterances and this sudden return of 
chills and fever to the business and fin- 
ancial centers are coincident. 

"A week or two ago there was every 
reason to hope that the Washoe and 
other big copper smelters would resume 
operations soon. At present all that 
can be said is that further business de- 
velopments must be awaited. The pros- 
pect Is that the domestic consumption 
of copper will continue verv much re- 
.vtrlcted for several months to come 
It is hoped that the foreign demand 
will be large enough to take care of 
the surplus Irom our current volume of 
production, which, it will be remem- 
bered, is only W> per cent to 70 per cent 
of the capacity of the combined smelt- 
ers of the country. 

".\t this writing the outlook is cer- 
tainly cheerless; but better times are 
probably ahead. Only a verv brief time 
will be required for a full recovery 
after the pendulum starts to swing the 
other way. Everything is now- depend- 
ent upon a resumption of general busi- 
ness activity, and this is awaiting the 
return of conHdence."

The Citizens' association makes the 
following statement in regard to the 
open shop controversy: 

"A certain Mr. .Shardt, who arrived 
in Duluth on Wednesday, was quoted 
in the News Tribune the following 
morning to the effect that he expected 
a .settlement of the building trades 
strike within a week. A further quota- 
tion is made from a prominent labor 
leader" — name not given — to the same 
effect, and that efforts were being made 
by both sides toward a reconciliation, 
both sides having come to the reliza- 
tion of the fact that it is time to stop 
quarreling over mere words and to get 
down to the real situation. 

"If these statements have any pur- 
pose at all, it is to blind those inter- 
ested to the facts of the situation. On 
the one part there is an effort to keep 
the members of local unions now out 
of work, continuously in line with their 
leaders, ami to satisfy these men that 
the strike must soon come to an end, 
resulting in their getting back to work. 
It i.s the .same line of talk that has 
been handed out to the men since the 
middle of November. At one time the 
strike was to be won by the closed 
shop in December, then the llrat of the 
year, then in the spring, "when work 
gets brisk,' then later, and now tliere 
is to be a settlement in a very few 
days. It has had the dt sired results, 
in many cases, and many union men 
who should be working at their trades 
and earning a good livelihood, are re- 
ceiving notliing but a meager strike 
benefit, not sufficient to keep the wolf 
from the door. On the other part, these 
statements are designed to intimidate 
and unsettle men who are at work. Ac- 
cording to the labor leaders there can 
be but one settlement of this strike— 
and that is for former employes to 
go back under old conditions, perhaps 
.somewhat modified as to minor details. 
This would necessarily mean the aban- 
donment by contractors of the men 
who have either come in from other 
cities and helped them out when their 
own workmen were ordered off in de- 
fiance of agreements, or of a like aban- 
donment of local union men who have 
seen the folly of the strike and have 
gone back to work. 

"The building trades strike was 
won for the open .shop the very day 
local contractors were able to get 
men and go ahead with work plan- 
ned. That was more than two 
months ago. It has remained won 
ever since. We may state here that, 
since that time, the Builders' Ex- 
change has had more men available 
than there was work for, and that 
except In one or two minor trades 
that are being gradually 6traightenj;d 
out. there has been no difficulty since 
that time. 

"The contractors of Duluth, and 
the Citizens' a.ssoclation acting with 
them, feel that they are In honor 
bound to stand by the men who 
have been wise enough and bold 
enough to come to their aid in this 
matter. The association feels that It 
would stultify itself if It permitted 
any settlement of the strike that 
woi'uld not give the men now work- 
ing the preference. It proposes to 
protect them. The contractors are 
of the same mind. The giving of 
places to men who left their work 
last November, simply on the order 
of some short-sighted leaders, would, 
at this time. Involve the displace- 
ment of other good workmen. This 
cannot be done. There is but one 
way for the men out of work to get 
back, and that way Is for them to 
take jobs as soon as the Jobs are In 
sight, on an open shop basis. Work 
is not active at present. We feel, 
from careful inquiry and study of the 
local situation, that it will be a better 
year in the building trades in Du- 
luth than in most cities of the United 
States, but it cannot be, even here, 
as active as 1907. There will be 
no rush of .spring work. Men suffi- 
cient for all trades, building as well 
as others, are readily available. The 
condition of industry throughout the 
country is deplorable, temporarily, we 
all hope. These frank statements 
are made for the benefit of those citi- 
zens of Duluth, now idle, who will 
need work shortly, and whom we hope 
and believe will wake up and secure 
jobs at their crafts when .such are to 
be had. 

"The statement has been made that 
local business men find the strike 
affects their trade. It does not re- 
quire a very acute mind to see that 
any slump In local trade Is due to 
other causes. The dullness and lack 
of employment is general. Indeed, 
the strike Is distribtiting more money 
in the city than would otherwise be 
spent In the trades. Work under- 
way is going on more rapidly than 
it would under closed shop condi- 
tions, as there is no restriction of 
the number of men employed on 
buildings; and money paid in wages, 
which are on the union scale, must 
be spent, whether it is earned by 
one man or another. Then, too, 
there are considerable sums now dis- 
tributed as strike benefits, and which 
we learn from the papers are quite 
largely contributed from outside 


By Maurice Wolff. 

Ayesha was the only child of an old 
couple named Ali and Fatma who Uvetl 
near the village of Abassan. Bhe was 
a lovely girl with eyes of the deepes. 
black and limb.s that would not have 
shamed a Venus. With all her beauty, 
Ayesha had to toll In the fields to help 
her parents to eke out a modest living, 
as they were very poor. Numerous suit- 
ors, attracted by her diligence as well 
as by her beauty, presencetd themselves, 
but none was looked upon with favor; 
Ayesha preferred— she was only in her 
sixteenth year— to remain with her aged 

By degrees the suitors, perceiving that 
the girl's mind to rema;n single, at least 
for the prese'ht, was not to be changed, 
fell off. 

All except one named Nassar. He was 
the bailiff of a wealthy landowner who 
lived In Cairo, visiting his estates at rare 
lnter\-als, and then for as short a time 
as possible. Few of the tenants had 
ever seen him, but all agreed that he 
was a harsh landlord, and that his riches 
had been amassed by usury and by 
grinding down the poor peasantry for 
miles and miles around. It was not to 
be wondered at then, that he was cor- 
dially hated by all, and that Nassar, too, 
came In for a full share of the odium 
cast upon his master. 

He pressed his suit very earnestly, 
pointing out to Ayesha how much better, 
would be her lot as hJs wife than her 
present position. His flatitering offers 
made no impression upon Ayesha, and 
hnding that Nassar. although she re- 
peatedly beggtd of him not to address 
her as It was not seemly for a Mahoin- 
inedan maiden to be seen conversing with 
one of the opposite sex. continufd to 
persecute her with his attentions, she as 
a last resource tlireatened to appeal to 
her father for protection. 

This threat had the desired effect; the 
old man had a heavy hand and Na.ssar 
did not care to feel its weight. Hence- 
forth he annoyed Ayesha no more, even 
seeming to Ignore her presence when 
chance threw him into her wav. 

But if he avoided the girl, it was not 
the same with old Ali. her father, whose 
•''V'i'.'r.'^'.,^'-' tourtt?d. and with whom he so 
skllllully Ingratiated himself that, by 
degrees, he galn(>d hl.s entire confidence 
and esteem by the pretense of virtues he 
did not possess. 

Fortune, which often comes to favor 
the designs of the wicked, at last did 
so in this case. A very heavy fall of 
rain flooded the country and washed 
away the greater part of the .voung 
or<)ps. The season not being too ad-

Oril MOTTO — "We Court Investigati<»n and Publicity." 
Capital Stock 500,000 Shares. Par Value $1.00 eacJi. 


The properties of this company consist of 160 acres of valuable 
mineral ground, situated within the "W'llcox Mining District," In So- 
corra county. New Mexico. 

The last report from the assistant manager on the properties 
states that he has shaft No. 2 timbered down 100 feet and had started 
hoisting on the same on Feb. -6th. He had got into the Breccia flow- 
again and it does not look as it did in shaft No. 1, in fact, it looks a 
lot more promising, for it carries considerable more quartz thfin I 
thought for. The flow is about 14 feet wide and, I would not be sur- 
prised. If it leads me to ore. All I can say at present is that, with 
depth, it may turn out to be the lead itself, as it carries values of $2 
and $3 of gold and silver. I also want you to send me 5,000 shares of 
stock for two men in my employ at the mines; make one certificate of 
3,000 shares to Christopher aicGrath and one certificate of 2,000 shares 
to Robert Slubblefield and I will collect for the same here. 

Mr. McGrath and Mr. Stubblefleld are both old miners and pros- 
pectors and are satisfied that we have a good prospect of getting ship- 
ping ore. 

We are getting along at this end well; in fact, better than I 
pected, and the weather is fine. Yours truly, 


Mr. Richard W^hiteslde. who Is manager and superintendent, 
leave Duluth for the company's mines on or about Feb. 20th. and 
take charge and push the work until he has it on a paying basis. 

The company is still selling stock at 15c a share, but will advance 
the price in the near future. 

For full particulars, prospectus, blue prints, specimens of ore or 
other information or stock, call or the company's office. Suite

-Among these there was none worse off 
than Ayesha's father, whose lands being 
low and near the river, were still under 

^'^^*ir;«-^", ^" *'^''' moment he coonflded 
dliTicultles to his new made friend 
,v,o. ..V. ^^^. oomforted him by saying 
that the waters would soon retire, and 
},^,^, ^^ou'd be able to ttlll and plant 
Ills fields over again. 

"But what am I to do?" said the old 
man. How shall I get fresh .seed when 
^ ' my .savinsrs of the past vear are 
gone.> They went to till and plAnt those 
nelds that are now under water " 

"Well," replied Na.s.sar. "I see no other 
way for you but to borrow the money 
you require. Luckily niy master is com- 
ing down here In a few days and I will 

require. It is irao 
hard man, but I will feel sure 
make favorable terms for yoa 
when 1 re<iuest him to do ao out of con- 
sideration for me." 

He then left. A couple of davs later 
he returned to say that, after a long an 1 
stormy discussion with his master dur- 
ing which he had threatened to ' leavj 
hini and take service elsewhere, the lat- 
ter had consented to lend the money re- 
quired without interest, only stpulating 
that if the loan were not repaid by a 
certain date he should have the right to 
sell All's property in order to repay him- 

This condition was gladly accepted, as 
by the date named and new crops would 
have been gathered and sold. 

Taking advantage of his intended vin- 
tims inability to read, Nas.ear contrived 
to change the date at which repavment 
would have to be made; instead of Us 
being six months h^^nce, as he had told 
Ali, the loan would have to be repaid 
in as many weeks. 

Five weeks had already gone bv, when 
one day Nassar, holding an open letter 
came to All to say that his master had 
written to him that he wanted all the 
ready money he could send him. and that 
he had to collect every loan made to the 
peasantry as soon as It became due 

Nassar. who was a daily visitor be- 
wailed his Inability to help them. He' had. 
he said, begged his master to content 
himself with a part payment only, but 
this had been refused. 

It wanted but two days till the time 
when Ali had to repay the loan, when 
one evening, Nassar, who now was al- 
ways with him, as If struck by a sudden 
thought, exclaimed: 

"I can only see one way for you out 
of your difficulty. You have a daugh- 
ter; give her to me for a wife. I will 
then claim your property as her dowry, 
and not even my maste*- will be able to 
touch It.' 

That evening Ayesha was told of Nas- 
sar's proposal and that she could save 
her parents from beggary In their old age 
by con.senting to marry him. 

The girl burst Into tears; checking them 
by an effort, she replied that she would 
do all that her duty and love to iier 
parents commanded her to. ^ 

On the following morning, she was no- 
wlifre to be found. Nassar, furious at 
being foiled, threw off the mask he had 
worn all along, and after claiming the 
money due his master and receiving a 
reply that it could not be paid, turned 
Ayesha's parents out of their home and 
bade the public crier given notice that 
the property would be sold a week hence 
to tlie highest bidder. 

Although heart-broken at being 
turned out of the home where thev 
had lived all their lives. All and Fat- 
ma were far more grieved at the dis- 
.ippearance of their daughter. 

The day fixed upon for the sale came 
round, and at the appointed time the 
man who acted as auctioneer, mount- 
ing upon a small table, announced that 
the sale was about to commence. The 
property which had been seized by 
Na.xsar in his master's name consisted 
of two fields and a small, mud-built 
cottage. It was offered at one-fifth of 
its real value; even at that price, no 
purchasers came forward. Nassar then 
made a somewhat higher bid "and the 
lot was about to be knocked down to 
him. when a young stranger, who with 
three or four others, who appeared to 
be his attendants, and who had mixed 
with the crowd almost unnoticed, made 
a bid far above that of Nassar's, a bid 
equivalent to the real value of All's 

His bid caused all eyes to turn to 
him. Considerably above the middle 
height, this .gure was slender, but 
singularly graceful, while his features 
were most pleasing. These advantages, 
coupled with his bid. enlisted the sym- 
pathies of all present in his favor. 

Nassar and the cadi— a creature of 
his own — were the only exceptions. 
Furious with rage, the former strode 
forward and in a voice hoarse with 
passion told the stranger to carry him- 
self and his impertinence elsewhere. 
Without deigning to reply, the youth, 
addressing himself to the cadi, who 
was present. Inquired whether the auc- 
tion was not a public one and whether 
it was not open to all bidders. 

"Yes. " replied the functionary, "the 
auction is a public one, but you see 
that Massar wishes to purchase the 
property for his master, who Is the 
landlord of most here present." 

"I am sorry to Interfere In any ar- 
rangement that the man you name Nas- 
sar and his master, whoever he may 
be. have made," said the youth, "but 
as the auction Is a public one, the bid 
I have made must hold good." 

Maddened with passion at this reply, 
Nassar rushed forward and raised his 
stick to strike the speaker. In a mo- 
ment me found himself seized and se- 
curely handcuffed by the attendants, 
whilst striding forward, the youth who 
had caused all this uproar addressed 
himself to the crowd: 

"Friends, " said he, "in me behold the 
son of your landlord and supposed

means for enriching the hypocrite and 
forger Nassar! Nay, my father, whom 
none of you have ever seen, not been 
a cripple and for the last ten years 
confined to his room, sucli extortion 
and tyr.inny would never have succeed- 
ed; he would have.seen to the manage- 
ment of his estate himself. Aware of 
his inability to get about, and know-

"A few nights ago In Cairo, as we 
were about to retire for the night, one 
of our servants came to tell mv mother 
that a young girl was at the gate implor- 
ing to see her. Notwithstanding the late- 
ness of the hour, my mother gave orders 
that she should be admitted. A few min- 
utes later the young girl was ushered 
into the room. Flinging herself at my 
mother's feet, she besought her to inter- 
cede with my father to save her parents 
from ruin. My mother raised the poor 
girl, who could scarcely stand from 
fatigue, telling her to have no fear, as 
her husband was no oppressor of the 
poor. Before she would listen to anv- 
thlng further, she Insisted that Ayesha— 
for It was she— should partake of som-* 
refreshment. The poor girl had walked 
the dlstanc- between this and Cairo in 
three days with hardly any rest or food. 
After partaking of the refreshments my 
mother ordered to be set before her the 
young girl, who fold her story. This was 
repeated to my father. On hearing it and 
learning what acts of villainy were be- 

ing done In his name, he at once »ent 
for me, and after giving me full power 
to act as I deemed best, told me to leave 
at once in order to put a stop to thla 

"Before leaving I went to see the min- 
ister of justice, who insisted on mv tak- 
ing as attendants the four "detectives 
who arrested Nassar and from whom he 
will find it Impossible to escape. 

"I have now, my friends, my father's 
full consent to make restitution to you 
for all the money or lands vou may have 
been deprived of in his name." Turning 
to Ali. the youth said: "Of vou, my 
friend. I have a favor to ask! 'My par- 
ents as well as myself believe that a 
good daughter like Ayesha cannot fail 
but make a good wife, and I therefore 
beg to a.ok you for her hand in marriage. 
She is at present staying with my 
mother, and has promised me to marry 
me provided you, too. give your consent." 

This consent was readily given and the 
marriage took place shortlv after. Not 
satisfied with restoring his "fields to hla 
father-in-law, his daughhters husband 
made him overseer In Nassar's place, to 
the delight of all the tenantry, who now 
had a man who could sympathize with 
them In their troubles and help them 
in their time of need. 

Nassar, having been found guilty of 
extortion and also of forging his mas-

years' imprisonment and hard labor.

a'turnin' and a'turnin' round and 
round tryin' to get a good look at it 
and all the time his cheese appertlte 
was growtn'. and finally, all of a'sud-

that hole, straight as a die, and he'd 
twist hisself clean up through the ice, 
like he were a cork screw, till his head 
was stlckln' out of the hole and then 
he'd start eatin'. 

"Say, any you lads got jest a little

A dozen hands held packages of to- 
bacco toward him and he helped him- 
self from them all. "So's not to show

gave the dry mouth a plentiful helping

was a lot of It. There had to be.

"Ye.s." ruminat-^4 the old timer 
"It war a queQ.r beast, there's no 
gettin' round that. Why, do you 
know that summer, after the breakup 
o" th<» winter of the blue snow, that 
animile lost a whole litter of pups, 
jest cause, when she started 'em 
in the world, she started 'em the 
wrong ways round the hill, their 
long I'^gs bein' on the up-side, they 
were lop-sided and rolled over'n the 
mountain and was kilt. Yes, siree, 
started every mother's son-of-'em the 
wrong way. and they was all kilt, 
evory one." 

And Uncle dexterously located a

out even spattering the ,vvali against 
which it stood 

The "Mitlgot." 

"There were a mighty strange sort

"don't you believe me?" 

"Course we do. Uncle." sang out a 
young fellow from the far end of the

He looked up and down the smoke-

Just give thought a moment and see. 
Here id a great nation, plenty big 
enough to take unto itself all of the 
human population of the world and 
put them in one corner of our country 
without feeling to any great extent the 
fact that we are all that exists of hu- 
manity. Our resources are ample to 
provide for the maintenance of thou- 
sands of millions of people. Opportuni- 
ties exist for the production of all 
physical human desires, and yet every 
day people die of hunger, whilst at 
the same time perishable foodstuffs are 
decaying for want of buyers. Families 
are homeless despite the fact that there 
are vacant houses everywhere and on 
top of It all come our good Christian 
ministers and tell us that we are suf- 
fering for the evils that our ancestors 
have committed. What hodgo podge. 
By the same process of reasoning it 
must bo assumed that the wealthy have 
been m.ade so by the favors of a Deity. 
Is it possible that a humane God would 
create and bring children Into this 
world and then make the many slaves 
and the few masters, tiie toilers paup- 
ers, and the Idlers millionaires? Nay, 
say I, a thousand times nay. Don't 
attribute tlie faults of man as a curse 
of God. Let us not be sacrlleg-ious. Let 
us be men. not fools. Socialism places 
blame upon neither God nor nature. It 
places the responsibility of physical 
life where It properly belongs, upon 
the shoulder.'' of society, and as we are 
all cogs of the wheel, our responsibili- 
ties are proportional. We 8oilalists 
want society to become the arbiter of 
the physical requirements of the people. 
We want man to become fraternal. We 
want to cease preying upon one an- 
other. We want all men to become 
co-workers, not shrInker.=V That Is 
what we mean by a co-operative com- 
monwealth. M. KAPLIN.

Utah Copper company, which has 
double the former"3 mill capacity. The 
difference, they say, will be made up 
b5' the sulphides they are sending to 
the American oompany"8 smelter. 

The United States company's copper 
smelter, at Bingham Junction, has been 
clo-sed down. This is the third plant 
closed by the farmers' aalt, the others 
being the Bingham Con.solidated and 
the U*ah Consolidated, while the Amer- 
ican Smelting & Refining 0'>mpany Is 
running on a greatly decreased ton- 
nage. It is understtx)d that the United 
States company will run for several 
days on lead ores before closing that 
part of the plant. It Is possible that 
the lead plant will be continued in 
operation, though derfinlte Informatino 
13 not obtainable. The company. It is 
said, has decided to ship 250 tons dally 
from Its Centennial-Eureka mines to 
its smelter at Kennctt, Cal., while ar- 
rangements arc being made to have the 
Yampa smelter at Bingham handle flfty 
tons daily. 

Jesse Knight has b<'>ught control of 
the Swansea mine in Tintic, the price 
being }1 a share for 60.CHK) of the 100,000 
shares In the company. The mine was 
desired by Mr. Knight largely because 
of the flow of water developed In It. 
^hich he will use in the operation of 
the smeJt?r now being built by him in 
Tintic, which is to go into commission i'low in hand in conection with the 

foot level, and is contemplating the 
installation of a new surface plant to 
cost about $50,000. With the com- 
pletion of the plant the Tuolumne 
company will bo in position to take 
out at least 300 tons of commercial 
ore dally. 

Active mining operations have been 
resumed In the Colorado property 
of the Davis-Daly Estates company, 
after about two weeks devoted to 
unwaterlng. The underground work- 
ings were found to bo in excellent 
condition, and it will only be a few 
days before all of the work will be 
going on as before the temprary 

Preparations are being made by 
the Butte-New York company for an 
early resumption of work on the 
Colonel Sellers, which was tempor- 
arily suspended about a month ago 
on account of the money market 
stringency. The trouble, so far as 
the Butte-New York company vis 
concerned, was brief and the com- 
pany is now ready to resume shaft 

early in May. The Swansea has been 
developed to the 1,050 level, and the ore 
between tho 800 and 1,050 levels is prac- 
tically untouched. The company has 
paid $3«JO.O00 in dividends and owns 100 
acres of patented ground.

New York, the president of the com-

part of the week, was so well im- 
pres-sed with the progress that has 
thus far been made and with the 
results that have been attained by 
the Butte & Superior Copper com- 
pany, operating on contiguous 
ground, that he has placed orders 
for a powerful electrical equipment

mine through a two-foot steel pipe. 
The cage at "C" Ludington is operated 
by an engine installed in an annex to 
"B" Ludington shaft. 

The Chapin being of the very wettest 
properties in the Lake Superior coun- 
try. It has the most powerful pump- 
ing plant possessed by any Iron mine. 
The bulk of the water, which comes 
in at the rate of 3,000 gallons a minute, 
is handled by a big AUls-Rledler pump, 
to which especial Interest Is attached 
for the reason that -it is protected by 
a steel shell. The pwmp chamber, on 
the slvteenth level of the Hamilton or 
No. 2 shaft, was excavated In solid 
rock, but as it Is in limestone the walls 
cracked in places, and to protect the 
pump, which was vital to the operation 
of the mine, from the damage which 
be caused by the fall of even a small 
amount of rock from , the roof, a steel 
chamber 34 feet wide by 60 feet In 
length and 22 feet In height was con- 
structed.* The Rledler pump handles 
2,0).W gallons of water per minute, a 
feat which would be nothing for a 
moderate elevation, but which becomes 
notable when It Is taken into con- 
sideration that every gallbn of the 
amount must be lifted 1418 feet 

The limestone on which the Chapin 
Is opened is exceeding favorable to the 
percolation of water. The shafts of 
tile Chapin are of exceptional depth— 
the average for the range is less than 
a thousand feet — and the mine must 
drain an immense territory, under the 
most favorable conditions, while at 
tiroes there are tapped great under- 
ground "vugs" or reservoirs which tax 
the equippm.ent to its fullest. The 
Meniminee range mines average wetter 
than those of any- other Lake Superior 
district, a fact unquestlonablly due to 
the limestone formation. Limestone 
districts are always noted for caverns, 
underground streams and generally 
aqueous conditions. The water finds 
its way for wonderfully long distances, 
and the deeper the shaft the greater 
the area drained and the. more water 
handled. As it fortunately occurs, the 
limestone beds of the Menominee aver- 
age a pretty sharp dip, for were they 
nearly fiat It would be an almost im- 
possible task to operate a deep mine 
pieroing ah extensive limestone 


With the Cornish plant installed in 
the englnehouse at "C" Luddlngton, 
which will be a matter of some Uionths 
yet, most of the water at the Chapin 
will be drained Into the new shaft and 
will be forked to surface by the big 
pump. This Cornish engine was built 
some twenty years ago at the E. P. 
Allls works at Milwaukee, but in all 
the time it was in cemmlssion at the 
old "D" Chapin shaft It was never 
called upon for full duty. It has a 
capacity of handling J.O-^O gallons per 
minute from a depth of 1,500 feet with 
a steam pressure of 125 pounds at the 
throttle. At the "D'" Chapin the lift 
was 600 feet. The engine is a steeple 
compound of the crank and fly wheel 
type. The fly wheel is forty feet in 
diameter, and its weight is luO tons. 
The height of the engine from the mas- 
sive foundation of concrete is fifty-four 
foet. The stroke of engine and pumps 
is 120 inches; the column Is twenty-eight 
inches in diameter. The pump lifts 
are 190 feet apart, except that at the 
bottom, wiilch is 170 feet. 

"C" Ludington, which is to be the 
Chaplns biggest producer, is located In 
the slates on the footwall side of the 
property* and about 600 feet southwest 
of the old incline shaft known as "B" 
Ludington, its site being selected with 
due reference to the pitch of the ore 
body, which is to the west. Practically 
all the ore below the present twelfth 
or working level will be sent to sur- 
face through the "C" Ludington. The 
Chapin Is the biggest underground 
mine In the Lake Superior iron region, 
and it produces a fine grade of ore— a 
beautiful blue specular running GO per 
cent or better in metallic iron. The 
property is operated on the caving plan. 
A great depression on surface marks 
the course of the mining operations, 
tlio ground being permitted to collapse 
as the ore is taken out beneath. 

The Chapin has had an Interesting 
history. It was opened in 1880 on lands 
owned by Henry Chapfn of Niles. Mich. 
A fee owner nad found himself in 
financial straits a few years previously 
and had tried to trade the tract in part 
payment of a debt of a few hundred 
dollars, but the harsh creditor refused 
the proffer and Mr. Chapin kept the 
land because he could not sell it. Since 
then the royalty he has received has 
made him a millionaire a number of 
times over. The Chapin has produced 
more ore than any single mine in the 
Lake Superior region, with the single 
exception of the big open-cut Mountain 
Iron property on the Mesaba range. Its 
total output foots up 15,205,000 tons, or 
one-fourth of all tho ore yet produced 
on the Menominee range, which last 
year had thirty-nine shippers. Its big- 
gest production was ^37,000 tons In 1902; 
its average for the past ten years is 
upwards of 850,000 tons per annum. 
Illuminative of the cost of conducting 

Iron and copper regions throughout the 
country, but there has yet been Httre 
change in the quotations for the car- 
bons, and not much if any, reduction 
In price Is likely. "The black diamond 
business is very largely in the control 
of a few New York nouses which have 
representatives in South America and 
other regions where the carbons are 
found, and which through these agents 
take all the stones offered. 

Few diamond drills were In use in the 
Lake Superior region a quarter of a 
century ago. but for a long time now 
drilling has been the chief method of 
exploration. The larger mining com- 
panies have fneir own drills, with run- 
ners and setters, and in general they 
keep them working the year round. 
Jasper and diorite rocks are difficult 
of penetration by shafts, yet are readily 
cut by the diamond-studded bits. In the 
early days a hole bored to a depth of 
5iJ0 feet was hailed as a remarkable 
achievement. Today they are frequent- 
ly put down below the 2,000-foot mark. 
It seldom happens nowadays that the 
drills fall to reach the desire<l depth. 
It was different in former years, v/hen 
a large percentage of the holes were 
not completed because of some unex- 
pected mishap. Formerly diamonds lost 
were Infrequently recovered, but today 
the contrary is the case. The sinking 
oT the standplpes, too. is a problem 
that has been mastered. Very often it 
is necessary to put the piping down to 
a depth of lt)ti feet and over through 
ground in which many large boulders 
are encountered. This work is tedious, 
and doubtless will always be, but with 
modern methods In vogue It Is far less 
difficult than It used to l>e. 

Corrlgan, McKlnney & Co. have a 
number of diamond drills in commis- 
sion In the Crystal Falls district. Lands 
at the Dunn, Kimball and Tobin mines 
are being given attention, and it is not 
doubted that new deposits of ore will 
be found. In fact, this has already been 
the case at the Hennepin portion of the 
Tobln property, where Important dis- 
coveries have been made at consider- 
able depth. An exploratory shaft has 
been sunk at the South Dunn tract, 
and drifting is now in progress at a 
depth of 100 feet. The deposit recently 
found at the North America property by 
the Huron Mining company has been 
determined to be some ninety feet in 
width. The test pit Is now being put 
down to a depth of seventy-five feet, 
at which point a second drift will be 
driven to the ore. It Is not Impossible 
that the North America will be strip- 
ped and the product taken out by the 
open-cut method, should the deposit be 
found of sufficient projiortlons. The 
overburden is so shallow that this 
would seem the most feasible plan. 
Other operators have had the North 
America "forty," but somehow they 
missed locating the ore. 

Providing present plans are not up- 
set by the recent decision of the Lake 
Superior operators to practically halve 
last season's shipments this year, the 
Steel corporation's StegmUler mine, in 
the Svvanzey distriot of the Marquette 
range, will be operated on a larger 
scale than at any previous time since 
tho company iibtalned possession of the 
property. The engine house is being 
enlarged and a new boiler and hoisting 
plant are to be Installed, replacing the 
equipment put In by the original oper- 
ators some years ago. This new plant 
will be for only temporary use, how- 
ever. With It In commission, the work- 
ing force win be increased, the shaft 
sunk to greater depth and the mine 
well opened up, after which ma- 
chinery of larger capacity will he In- 
stalled. The Stegmtller has heretofore 
been operated on a very small scale 
The shaft is down 300 feet and several 
drifts have been started. The prop- 
erty is located between the Princeton 
Nos. 1 and 2 mines, owned by the Cleve- 
land-Cliffs Iron company. The Ste^sl 
corporation has a tract of sixty-six 
acres. The ore is similar to that ob- 
tained at the Princeton, and indica- 
tions are favorable for the development 
of a good-sized mine. A second shaft 
may be started wltiiln the next year. 

The Steel corporation is preparing to 
operate a diamond drill in section 28, 
In the Swanzey field, where It owns five 
forties directly east of the Smith mine 
of the Clovoland-CUffs. It Is thought 
that the ore formation will be found to 
extend through the Steel corporation 
lands, and If the re.sult of the drill tests 
is satisfactory another mine will bo 
opened. Excellent progress is being 
made with the construction of the steel 
head frame at the company's Prince of 
Wales mine at Negaunee. The shaft- 
houso will be ready for use by the first 
of Marcli. but it will be late in the 
spring before ore is hoisted. The shaft 
Is sinking to tap a newly located de- 
posit beneath the present bottom of the 
mine. The installation of considerable 
equipment is yet to be made. 

Until the work of shifting the chan- 
nel of the Sturgeon river away from 
the mine is completed, all mining work 
Is suspended now at the Loretto com- 
pany's property, east of Norway. Me- 
nominee range. There are 120 feet of 
ground between the second level and 
the bd of the stream, but it was con- 
sidered wise to take no risk of the river 
suddenly being plunged into the mine 
and the men were accordingly ordered 
from the workings. Directly under tne 
present channel of the Sturgeon the 
mine has caved from the second to the 
sixth level. One hundred men were af- 
fected by the decision to cease mining 
operations but all have been given 
work by the contractor, who has in 
hand the canal excavation.

be ground and the metal concentraited 
on scillating tables. It Is probable this 
treatment will bring the loss In con- 
glomerate tailings down close to the loss 
in amygdaloid tailings, which runs under 
five pounds per ton. The old law. "the 
richer the headings the richer the tail- 
ings." cannot be set aside entirely, but 
it can i>e largely circumvented. In the 
practice of earlier years the conglomerate 
tailings carried twenty pounds and more 
of copper per ton and probably at some 
time these old tailings, easily accessible 
and close to the regrinding plant, will be 
pumped out of Torch lake and treated.

The Ainericaii Writers of Music. 

With Edward Alexander MacDowell 
recently dead, Dudley Buck is, perhaps. 
the leading living American composer, 
and, as has been said, he is in retire- 
ment. A legion of churchgoers of three 
generations have sung his songs and 
listened to his music. For a quarter 
of a century he was organist in Holy 
Trinity church. Brooklyn, and director 
and organist of the APoHo cluTT, a 
really great power in the American 
musical world. Since 1869, when he be- 
came organist for St. John's church. 
Chicago, he has t>ee>n the best known 
church organist in this country. 

Ho had not left St. John's when the 
Chicago fire occurred, but was in Al- 
bany. N. Y., ready to give a concert, 
when he received word from his wife 
that their home was threatened. Ho 
nevertheless went on with the concert, 
and when It was over he received an- 
other telegram, telling him that hl.s 
house had been burned, together with 
(many valuable music manuscripts, and 
that his wife had gone to a neighbor's 
for shelter. 

Shortly after this Buck moved to 
Boston, where he became an organist 
In St. Paul's church. It was here that 
he met Theodore Thomas, who persuad- 
td him to go to New York as assistant 
conductor of the Thomas concerts. This 
was in 1S76. That year Buck became 
an organist in Brooklyn, and from 
then on until his retirement his work 
was solely in what Is now Greater New

the Menominee range — the sinking of 
a shaft at an expense of nearly $2,000 
for the purpose of ipecoverlng a dia- 
mond drill bit. The drill rod having 
broken, the carbon-stud^en head was 
left at the bottom of jd 65-foot hole. 
Ordinary methods of recovering the bit 
being unsuccessful, the' shaft-sinking 
plan was adopted. The work is prollt-

Is valued at $5,000. 

The expense of operating diamond 
drills has increased considerably the 
past few years. This has been due 
largely to the enhahced cost of the 
carbons used in the drll* bits. Two de- 
cades ago the best Ijuality of black 
diamonds could be had for $15 per carat. 
At no time during th? past few years 
have they been procured at less than 
$^ or $70. and during the recent sea- 
son they commanded' from $85 to $100 a 
carat. As many of the carbons are be- 
ing found as at any previous time, but 
the demand has been stqadlly growing 
and the prices have b«e9 keeping pace 
with it. Just now. w(th,a general pol-

a cherry tree, where he was sure he 
would not disturb the family, and there 
away in the branches and play the in- 
ptrument to his heart's content. About 
the same time he borrowed a book on 
bass from one of his father's clerks, 
and ma-slered Its technicalities in sur-

he learned to play classical church 
music, and from then on showed a 
decided partiality for music of this

Feb? 15.— Barrett & Zimmerman's report: 
Trading for the week ha& been very

to weaken the next. The liberal con- 
signments of mares and farm chunks 
received, together with the surplus left 
over from the previous week exceeded 
the demand and kept values at a low 
Ivel several carloads wore purchased 
by 6akota buyers for their retail trade. 
Orders for heavy young draft horses 
were lllled for the logging and mining 
interests early in the week, causing a 
slight upward tendency In that class. 
Mules received were of good quality, 
but met with slow demand. Never have 
horses been sold as low in proportion

mission houses. After May had touched 
SBfiil^c it advanced to ':ii'k.c. The close 
■was steady, with May %c higher at 93%c. 

The corn market opened firm because 
of local receipts, which were below the 
estimate, and unfavorable weather 
throughout the corn belt. May corn 
opened %c to V4C higher, at 6f>%c to 60%c, 
and held within these figures for some 
time. l.iOcal receipts were 195 cars, wrth 
one of contract grade. 

A sain in strength was evident In the 
last half of the day. May advan^^ing to 
61%c. The close was strong, with May %c 
higher at 61%c. 

The oats market opened firm, along 
with corn, but later weakened on mod- 
erate realizing. May oats opened a 
shade higher, at 52%c. sold at 52%^'«)%c, 
and then declined to 52%lt%c. Local re- 
ceipts were 197 cars.

The Cotton >larket. 

New York, Feb. 15.— The cotton mar- 
ket opened steady at an advance of 5'ii"7 
I)oints and showed a net advance of 7^8 
points during the early session on cov-

and reports that interior holdings were 
not meeting the det^line In futures. Sen-

Bartlett-Frazer and Carrington to 
Walter W. Cai-r— The slock market 
opt^ned strong, but weakened and sold 
off $1 to $3 from the high points. There 
has been quite a lot of liquidation. \es- 
'lerday's buyers j>n the successful city 
loan were selling on the fear of South- 
ern Pacific and Union Pacific injunction. 
It Is p<jinted out that the $300,0'>0.'>Jt) of 
bids for the New York City $50,000,000 
bond issue were swelled to this great 
total by a very large number of ficti- 
tious bids and others from entirely un- 
responsible persons with a view of mak- 
ing it show up as Well as possible. The 
labor statistics have been bearish, one 
item covering a c<jming reduction In the 
pay of 185,000 employes of New England 
cotton mills. One house, in Us weekly 
review, says the cost of labor must be 
reduced before the bottom of the busi- 
ness depression can be reached.

Election of Directors 
Promises to Develop In- 
teresting Contest 

Stockholders of the .Shattuck-Arizona 
Copper companies are holding their an- 
nual meetings in Duluth this afternoon. 
The stockholders' meetings are to be 
followed by directors' sessions. 

Both gatherings to be inter- 
esting, as there have been persistent 
rumors of a fight f6r control of the 
two companies b^ween two factions 
among the heaviest stockholders, and 
which first came to light when B. M. 
Pattison announced his retirement as 
general manager of the Shattuck and 
Denn mines. 

This fight for supremacy will likely 
be settled today. Either one side or the 
other will be in control after the meet- 
ingsk, or they will declare peace and 
effect a compromise. 

It is said that in this warfare are 
arrayed o\\ one side L. W. Hill, A. M. 
Chisholm and Thomas Bardon, with 
their assM^ciates, and on the other, Mar- 
tin Pattison, L. C. Shattuck and B. M. 
Pattison, with their adherents. 

The Denn-Arizona stockholders 
gathered in the office of Martin Pat- 
tison & Co. and tliv.' Shattuck-Arizona 
meeting was held in A. M. Chl.sholm's 
office, both of which are on the sixth 
floor of the First National bank build- 

Among other business to be disposed 
of by the directors at their meeting 
following their election today, is the 
election of a general superintendent of 
the properties of both concerns, to fill 
the post made vacant by the resigna- 
tion of B. M. Pattison. 

B. M. Pattison is here today from 
Bisbee to attend the meetings, a» is 
also L. C. Shattuck of Bisbee. Maurice 
Denn, after whom the Denn-Arizona 
Is named, did not come. Others who 
are here from out of town to attend 
the meetings are Thomas Bardon of 
Ashland, L. W. Hill. R. I. Farrington 
and W. R. Begg of St. Paul.

Brought $W0 in Confederate Money and tlie Writer 

Realized Nothing. 

When Col. James Ryder Randall, 
who wrote "Maryland, My Maryland," 
passed away in Augusta, Ga., Wednes- 
day, Jan. 15, the South lost the author 
of a poem which Oliver Wendell 
Holmes declared to be the greatest 
war song of any nation, and a poem 
which brought its author only $100 in 
depreciated Confederate money, which 
was worthless before its owner sought 
to use it, says a Baltimore dispatch to 
the New York Herald. 

Although the poem attained world- 
wide fame, Col. Randall died poor. In 
a witty address he made here recently 
there was an undercurrent which in- 
dicated that the material problems of 
life were very pre.sent ones to him. 
He told a story of meeting an old v^'ar- 
time associate and telling of .some of 
his difficulties. This old friend, Col. 
Randall state, replied: 

"Randall, you cannot expect immor- 
tality and house rent, too." 

Col. Randall was born in Maryland 
of good old Maryland stock. 

•For forty years, with slight inter- 
missions, he had been a resident of 
Augusta, Ga., and for several years he 
was an editorial writer on the Augusta 
Chronicle. He had gone to Augusta 
in 1864, after serving in the Confed- 
erate army, and assumed the editor- 
ship of the old Constltutionlst, and 
when this paper was merged into the 
Chronicle Col. Randall was retained. 

Although born in Baltimore he 
never lived in Maryland, and it was 
always his life's ambition to get money 
enough to settle down in his native 
state. When stricken ill with the grip 
he was on his way to make his home, 
when 69 years old, in the city of his 
birth. He died the day his poems were 
to be published here for the first time 
in book form. 

A pathetic coincidence Is In the fact 
that Col. Randall's death occurred at 
a time when there was a movement 
on foot to a fund or create an 
office which enable him to spend his 
last days in comfort in the state he 
glorified. Former Governor Warfleld 
had suggested that the state create an 
office to be known as "keeper of the 
archives," to which position Mr. Ran- 
dall should be appointed. Others, not- 
able among them Senator Whyte, were 
interested in the plan to bring the poet 
to Maryland and to keep him here as 
an honored citizen. 

Brander Matthews has written an 
account of the circumstances under 
which "Maryland. My Maryland." was 
written, and the poem's author ap- 
proved Prof. Matthew's account. In 

April, 1861, Col. Randall read in the 
New Orleans Delta news of the attack 
on the Massachusetts troop as they 
pa.ssyd through Baltimore. 

"This account greatly excited me," 
Mr. Randall wrote in answer to a 
letter from Prof. Matthews. "I had 
long been absent from my native city, 
and the startling event there influ- 
enced my mind. That night I could 
not from my mind what I had 
read In the paper. Ab<jut midnight I 
arose, lit a candle and went to my 
desk. Some powerful Influence seemed 
to pos.sess me, and almost involuntarily 
I proceeded to write the song of 'My 

"I remember that this Idea seemed 
to take shape as mu.slc in my brain — 
some wild air that I cannot now recall. 
The whole poem was dashed off rapid- 
ly when once begun. It was not com- 
posed In cold blood, but und<r what 
may be called a conflagration of the 
senses, if not an inspiration of the in- 
tellect. No one was more surprised 
than I was at the widespread and in- 
stantaneous popularity I had been bo 
strangely stimulated to write." 

Col. Randall always told his friends 
that the poem "wrote itself." 


Success Magazine: We are as- 
tonished at the familiarity of our 
friend with the different makes of 
automobiles. As we walk down 

the boulevard he n<jtes each ma- 
chine that whirls by us and without 
the hesitation gives the 
name of Its make. 

"Here comes a Steerocar," he 
.says, "the next Is a Pothard-Plump, 
that one turning the corner Is a 
Paddalwhack, the one coming now 
is a Pokermotlve," and so on. In 
no single instance does he fall to 
name the machine. 

WTiile we know him for a man of 
keen observation and of 
Intellect, we are astonished at his 
catholic knowledge of automobiles. 

We beg him to tell us how he 
gained so much Information. 

He demurs for a time, but upon 
becoming insistent he laughs at us 
and confesses: 

"Old man, I didn't know one from 
the other. You were so blamed 

anxious to know what kind they 
were that I just named them off- 
hand for you as they happened 
along. And you would have been 
Just as well satisfied. If you hadn't 
forced me to grlve my scheme awi^r."

The week has been a rather quiet 
period In local reaJ estate circles. For 
several days the weather conditions 
were not favorable to the taking of 
prospective purchasers out to view 
property. Some new inquiry has been 
reported at various offices, mostly for 
unimproved lots for improvement. The 
local ro>al estate men are unanimous 
in the opinion that there will be a 
larger building movement this spring 
than most people anticipate. Actual 
sales have been few this week, but 
there are some negotiations under way 
at a number of the locaJ real estate 
officer that are expected to bring re- 
.sults within a few days. Bargain hunt- 
or.s are reported by the brokers, but so 
far as can be learned there is practi- 
cally litlle or nothing doing in the 
way of bargains on the local market, 
(hvners of Duluth realty have passed 
that stage where they may have felt 
disposed to shave prices. Unless there 
is some pressing need for money, the 
owners are firm as to prices, and those, 
as a rule, are an advance of what the 
prt)perty was held for a year ago.

Twenty-two years ago this coming 

April. David Pepper of Philadelphia, 
Pa., purchased the 100 feet fronting on 
Superior street at the southeast corner 
of First avenue eaat, for $18,300. This

ferred the property to the L. S. & S.

For a suburban dwelling the above 
design is appropriate, especially so 
in the neighborhood of Duluth. It 
is distinctly characteristic of this 
rugged country and would make an 
unusually attractive home. The site 
should be somewhat elevated, the 
approach to the house being on an 
easy rise. To carry out the true 
.sentiment of the design, native ma- 
terial should be u.sed as far as 
pos-slble. Native rock, and the pine, 
birch and cedar that grow in this 
vicinity, could all be worked to good 
tffec t in building. The enclosing 
ualLs from basement to roof are of 
stone, laid in cement. The veranda 
post.s and beams, the brackets and 
large board of gables are of solid 
timbers, .showing in a pka.<?ing de- 
sign, the genuine strength of con- 
struction. The roof sholild be of 
cedar shingles, stained a moss green, 
or left to weather u-ithout staining.' 

The outside woodwork could be 
painted a warm cream color, or 
stained a weathered color. 

The plans suggest a cozy and truly 
homelike arrangement. The rooms 
are not large, yet they are of com- 
fortable size, well lighted and airy. 
Though the plans are not of great 
area, there is a certain freedom of 
space and convenience in their ar- 
rangement that are especially worthy 
of note. Xo hall room is sacrificed 
to the stairway, yet the stairs are 
as convenient and as could be 
desired, and the direct communica- 
tion between kitchen and front part 
of the hous-e is made possible. The 
living room is a fairly large room 
and is decidedly attractive with its 
stone fireplace and wide htarth, and 
the low. decp-siUed windows. The 
dining room is Entered through a 
beamed opening, and is finished sim- 
ilar to the living to(fm. At the rear 
is a wide window, fiVe feet above the 

floor, allowing space for sideboard 
underneath. The space in the kit- 
chen and pantry is nicely utilized 
and meets ever>' requirement. 

Four bedrooms, the smaller of 
which could serve as a sewing room, 
four clothes closets, a bathroom, and 
a linen closet, are planned in the 
second story. The two front bed- 
rooms are unusually attractive, the 
dormer alcoves being special fea-_ 

The floors of the flrst and second 
stories are of hardwood, and the 
basement and second floors of ce- 
ment. The finish of the hall, living 
room and dining room is of Nor- 
way pine, stained, and the balance 
of the house is of birch. 

The ceilings are 7 feet, 9 feet 
and 8 feet in the clear. 

Including hot water heat and 
plumbing, such a dwelling would 
to build $4,200. Anthony Puck, 

architect, Duluth, Minn.

Attempt Ma(h> to Get 
Young Girf^to Im- 
moral l&soit 

William Carlson Again 

in Toils After Recent 


The Duluth pcUlce have a case of 
"white slave" trafft^c.' with which to 
deal Acquitted by a Jury lii district 
court after two trials on a charge of 
grand larceny. WlliUim Carlson of 
Floodwood is in the tolls of the law 
again with prospects of a more seri- 
ous charge being placed against him. 
He was arrested this morning by the 
police and is being held at the central 
station on suspicion of having at- 
tempted to Induce a young Finnish 
girl to go to Floodwood and become 
an inmate of a house of ill-fame, said 
to be conducted by his wife. 

The charge has not been placed 
against Carlson yet and the police are 
looking for more ,avidgnce, but It Is 
believed that that already secured is 
sufficient to h«)ld him to the grand 
Jury and to send him before a Jury in 
district court again. 

The specific incident which wa.oi 
brought^ to the attention of the police 
and caused CarLs^Mi's.. arrest, was re- 
vealed by the young f^Innl-sh girl. She 
is but 17 years of a^e and can speak 
no English. She saM that last night 
she was taken to a bearding house on 
lower Lake avenue with the ostensible 
purpose of taking ^ place as dish 
washer. When she arrived there, it Is 
said, another woman, prompted by 
Carlson, made the ftlri a proposition 
to go to Floodwood..; 

According to tlie evidence in the 
hands of the police,: no attempt was 
made to veil the rea\ jiroposltion. The 
girl waa told the natuie of the place 
she would be expected' to enter. She 
was Injured some time ago, one of her 
hands being badly scaJded, and It is 
thought tiiat on account of the injury, 
which incapacitates her for regular 
work as a domestic, the man thought 
she could easily bo procured for his 
nefarious purposes. She revealed the 
proposition she had received to some 
friends, who notified the police, 

Carlson, it is said, denies all knowl- 
edge of the affair, as does his wife, 
who was held by the police for a 
short time this morning, and later 
released. It being believed that she 
had no direct hand in the dealings 
Carlson la said to have carried on

Probate Court Order. 


Big Plans Are Made for 
Evening of Washing- 
ton's Birthday. 

Duluth will this year see a winter 
carnival of the kind that was made 
famous In Montreal, Quebec and other 
eastern cities. 

The Duluth Curlinar club last year 
inaugurated Its fancy dress carnival 
on Washington's birthday, with the 
Intention of making It an annual affair, 
and gradually adding to It. This year 
the directors of the club are going into 
the plans on a far more elaborate 
scale, and few of the niembers realize 
what a big event the carnival will be. 

It is different from the ordinary 
masquerade, and burlesque costumes 
will be frowned upon as much as pos- 
sible, except where they truly repre- 
sent some character. Many of the 
members are making their own cos- 
tumes for the occasion, or are belng- 
insr out old costumes worn in former 
years. For tlie benefit of those who do 
not care to go the expense of buying a 
costume, however, the club has made 
arrangements to have about 500 fancy 
costumes on hand, to be rented to the 
members at a nominal cost. The c6s- 
tumes have been brought from Chicago, 
and they include cowboys, clowns, Joan 
of Arc, Frederick the Great, Turkish 
prince and princess, coat of mail, Ro- 
man gladiators, knights, Hamlet, 
George and Martha Washington, colon- 
ial dames, Uncle Sam, men of all na- 
tions. Queen Elizabeth, gypsy queens, 
Spanish dancers, English court ladles, 
king and queen of England, and scores 
of other well known masquerade fig- 

The rink will be beautifully deco- 
rated for the occasion, scores of ad- 
ditional lights having been put In. and 
bunting and fiags draped from the 

The carvlnval will be for the benefit 
of the member.s and their friends only, 
owing to the limited capacity of the 
rink. Every holder of a skating ticket 
can Invite one friend. Only those In 
costume will be allowed to skate, and 
there will be a program of band music 
for their benefit. 

The carnival will be held on the even- 
ing of Washington's birthday anniver- 
sary. Saturday Feb. 22.

Duluth .Club IVill Build 

House Near Superior 


The Duluth Yacht club will have 
a branch club near the Superior en- 
trance on the bay side of Minne- 
sota Point, unless all carefully laid 
plans fall through, and there is little 
chance of that. 

Negotiations have been begun for 
the buying or leasing of a property 
having a 150-foot front on the bay, 
near the Superior canal. When the 
club has obtained this land, and 
from all Indications a deal -should be 
closed within the next few days, 
they will build a branch club there. 

The club is planning to build a 
one-story house of but one large 
room, which will serve as cafe and 
lounging room combined, with a 
small kitchen at the back. The 

greater part of the club will be a 
'T)orch, which will extend the full 
length of the building In front, and 
possibly on two other sides. 

This proposed nevt branch will be 
a great source of i pleasure to the 
yachtsmen. They c|an sail down the 
bay in the late afteijnoon, dock their 
boats at the bran<rh, take supper 
there, and return in' the evening. It 
also will be a great help in case they 
should become becalmed, as often 
happens, at the further end of the 
bay. The branch will be near at 
hand, with a dock for the boats, and 
there will be no long row back to 
the main club house.

Objects to Reduction in 

Amounts of Certain 

Expense Items. 

Probate Judge J. B. Mlddlecoft has 
signed the order for the flnal account of 
the administrator of the estate of 
Charles Qasper, deceased, and has de- 
creed the distribution of the residue of 
the estate among the foreign heirs oi 
the former Fond du Lac business man. 
W. G. Joerns, administrator of the 
estate, has tiled notice of an appeal to 
the district court from the allowajice 
of the final account and the decree of 
distribution, on the ground that lie Is 
aggrieved at the action of the probate 
court In disallowing certain Items in 
tUo final account, or, rather, the re- 
duction made by the court of the 
amounts stated In certain items. 

Mr. Joerns, as administrator, includ- 
ed In his account the following Items 
of expense, compensation of represent- 
ative, $750; general expenditures. In- 
cluding attorney's fees, , etc.. J448.73; 
cost of litigation. $258.59; and taxes and 
expenditures on Carlton county lands, 
$5s6.24. The court reduced these 
amotmts to $350, $305.18, $48.83 and $563.- 
14, respectively. 

The court finds the residue of the 
estate for distribution among the heirs 
to comprise the following: personal 
property, $8,367.75 cash, a watch, chain 
and charm, some uncollected accounts 
In the amount of $550 and three notes 
of $66.48, $77.48 and $20 each; real estate, 
lota 72 and 74 First street, Fond du 
Lac, subject to tax claims and about 
200 acres of land in Carlton county. 

The disposition among the heirs Is on 
the following basis: Peter Maus and 
Elizabeth Maus, each one-third of the 
personal and real property; Carl Maus, 
Elizabeth Maus and Peter Maus each 
one-ninth of the personal and real 

The estate has been In pnjbate for 
over two years and there has been a 
considerable amount of litigation over 
the same. 

When Charles Gasper died It was not 
known whether he had any relatives. 
The pix)ceedings for an administrator 
started a lively contest between the 
creditors of the estate and the German 
consul at St. Paul, the latter repre- 
senting supposed foreign heirs of the 

The administrator appointed at the 
request of the creditors was finally de- 
posed in favor of one appointed for 
the heirs through the request of the 
German consul.

11 E. Gooch Vtfipes Off 

Old Scores Held 

Against Him. 

There is a mingling of money 
and conscience In the story of H. 
E. Gooch, a former Duluth broker, 
now a resident of Lincoln, Neb. 

Mr. Gooch left Duluth about three 
years ago. He wag a young man 
whom almost every one Mked, even 
his creditors. He was engaged In the 
brokerage business here, and shortly 
before his business failed, Mr. 
Gooch had married. He was on 
the wrong side of the market, and 
his business went under. He left, 
owing money to more people than 
he cared to think about, although 
there was no hint of dishonest deal- 
ing in any of hie transactions. 

"I'll pay every cent if it takes 
me a life time," Mr. Gooch is said 
to have told a friend before he left 
Duluth three years ago. Other men 
have said the same thing, but this 
week that promise has been ful- 
filled. Mr. Gooch has returned dol- 
lar for dollar to every creditor whom 
he owed. 

C. 'S. Roe, an attorney, repre- 
senting Mr. Gooch, was in Duluth 
this week settling the accounts of 
the young man who has made good 
out in Lincoln. 

Mr. Roe visited every personal 
and btiainess creditor on the list fur- 
nished by Mr, Gooch, and paid them 
in full the amount due them. No 
pressure was exerted toward secur- 
ing the return of the money. The 
act was entirely voluntary.

rible double tragedy of last Monday,

school teacher at the Shell Lake, Becker 
county, school, killed the girl and then 
himself, was enacted Wednesday after- 
noon, when the victim of Bolt's insane 
rage was burled from tlie Witter .school- 
house. Rev. Mr. Rickle of Parks Rapids 
conducted the services and the scene 
was a touching one. The body was 
buried in the Ponsford cemetery. 

The body of the murderer and suicide 
was removed from where It fell near 
Shell Lake schoolhouse .after he com- 
mitted suicide, by two of the deceased a 
brothers and buried near the Bolt home 
at Eagle Lake.

London, Feb. 15.— No credence what- 
ever is attach<Mi here to the report from 
Vienna the shah of Persia had been 
assassinated. The charge d'affaires of 
the Parisian legation in London de-

On the Ground That He 

Was Insane When 

Making It. 

Twelfth Juror Obsti- 
nately Holds to the 

Been Out Since Saturday 

and No Agreement 

in Sight. 

Clinton, 111.. Ffb. 17. — After having 
been cut since Saturday evening the 
jury In the .'^nell will case had not 
reached a verdict up to 10 o'clock to- 

■Rumors were broadly current that 
elevt-n jurors favor the breaking of the 
will left by Col. Thoma.s Sntll on the 
ground of insanity, but the remaining 
juror iihftinntely holds out. 

The $2,000,000 Snell will went 
to tlie jury late Saturday afternoon. 
Judge Cochran's instructions are re- 
garded as favorable to the defendants 
of the will. In particular he told the 
jurors that a man might be a moral 
leper and still make a sound will an>l 
that the proof of mental and moral 
depravity does not disprove testamen- 
tary capacity. 


Killing of John Clawson 

Due to Domestic 


Reading, Pa.. Feb. 17.— The arrent of 
the man suspected of the murder of 
L.ewis B. Clawson, who was shot to 
death on Saturday in the office of the 
8h'~t failory. uf whith he was pro- 
pu Jfior. Is expected soon. 

Ill fact, the pollPe would not he sur- 
prised if he would open negotiations 
for his surren«ler and ilaitn justifica- 
tion for tlie crime. The young woman 
who has l»een mentioned in connection 
with the case is ktepliip: in seclusion. 
The story of the tragedy in« Uules jeal- 
ousy and doniestu; unh.ippines.s. The 
name of the girl has lie. n associated 
wltli that of :\lr. Clawson for some 
time. Tile coroner today said Clawson's 
widow told the story of her unhappy 
marri.i.l life. It whs in hehalf of Mrs. 
Claw.son that the man who is said to 
have shot her husband called upon the 
latter and pleaded with Itim to change 
his cotirse in life. A quarsel followed 
and then came the shooting. The siis- 
pe< ted man is a near friend of the fain- 
ilv. A witnes.s ha.s l>een found in the 
person of Miss Rose 'lobias, who occu- 
jiles rooms overlooking the office and 
who saw the shooting. She saw a 
young man run from the factory.

From Her Entire Empire 
is Now the Object 

of China. 

She is Now Raising and 

Equipping an Army 

of 1.000.000. 

San Francisco, Feb. IT. — At a meet- 
ing in the Young Men's Christian as- 
sociation headquarters yesterday the 
Rev. Xg Poon Onew. editor of the Chi- 
nese Wf.rld, told his audience that 
China was raising an army of 1,000,- 
00(1 men to drive the European nations 
from the empire. 

"But she will tiever be a menace to 
America," said the editor, "because, 
among other things, we have learned 
lecently. that the United States is 
the only nation on earth with a con- 

The journalist talked on "China's 
Possibility and the Church's Responsi- 
bility," and he interspersed his addies.i 
with epigrams and flgure.s of true Chi- 
nese terseness. 

"China," he continued. "Is just 
awakening from her slumber and she 
Is getting ready to go to arms. When 
she does she will send G^-many, 
France. England, Russia and other 
robbing and thieving nations home in 
a hurry. If Russia ever tries again to 
gr.ib any Chinese territory we will fill 
her full of gory holes, just as Japan 
did. China Is destined to be the great- 
est nation on earth."

Manager of Rubber Com- 
pany Thinks They Will 

New York, Feb. 17.— Utilization of 
automobiles to transport rubber from 
the back country of the Congo ten-i- 
tory to the river, is planned by the 
American Congo company, whose gen- 
tral manager, Samuel P. V'erner, ar- 
rived here yesterday from .Africa. 
where he has been directing head of 
the expeditions that have been opening 
up the territory. The chief problem of 
the lerritory, says Mr. Verner is that 
of transportation, and his idea that the 
use of the automobile is the most prac- 
ticable plan is founded upon persxjnal 
txaminaiion of the crondiiions. Back 
of the river, he says, are 

tli< high, smooth veldts or 

plain.-?, covered for the most pait with 
l.)Tig grass and practically devoid of 
timber. "My i)lan," said Mr. Verner, 
yesterday, "is to cut automobile road.s 
through the jungle strips at various 
jvoints, and then by burning off the 
grass on the plains, we can run our 
ca;s clear the country without 
botherin.:? about roads. I think it will 
wi^rk excellently. .Ml of the country 
back of the river Is high and healthy, 
though hot, and is as easy to cross as

Ixmdon, Feb. 17.— In view of the

the Radical party, whlcli advocates re- 
duction In armaments, there has been 
much speculation as to whether the 
government will i>ersist in the deter-

Tliose in a position to know say they

East Orange, N. J., Feb. 17. — A loud 
protest has gone up here against the

accepting $39,000 from Andrew Car-

city already has one Carnegie library, 
which originally cost $50,000 and costs

think the cost of running the library is

Ends His Life by Shoot- 
ing Himself in 

Wizard Saves Man's Wife 

From Following 


West Orange, N. J.. Feb. 17.— John F. 
Randolph., treasurer of the Edison 
Manufaeiurins company, of which 
Thomas A. Elison is president, com- 
mitted suicide in the cellar of his resi- 
dence, on New Valley Way, today, by 
shooting himself in the head. It Is 
believed that Mr. Randolph was tem- 
porarily insane, as neither in his busi- 
ness nor his family affairs was there 
any known cause for such sai act. This 
belief was g-iven further credence by 
the knowledge that a near relative be- 
came mentally unbalanced a few years 
ago. Alphonse Westee, secretary of 
the Edi.-ion Manufacturing company, 
said today that Mr. Randolph's ac- 
counts Were absolutely .straight. 

Mr. Randolph was private secretary 
to Thomas Edison, and Mr. Edison was 
one of the llrsi to reach his house after 
his death was known. 

Saves Mrs. liaiidulph. 

That Mrs. Randolph did ivot follow 
her husband to death was due to the 
prompt and determined action of Mr. 
Edi.-*on. When he reached the house, 
;Mr3. Randolph was hysterical, wring- 
ing her hands and crying out that she 
would kill her.self. Mr. Edison followed 
Mrs. Randolph to the second tloor, and 
came upon her as she was about to 
throw hkjrself fi'om a second story win- 
dow. He seized the frenzied woman, 
and after a hard struggle succeeded in 
pulling her back to a place of safety. 
Several letters left by Mr. Randolph 
showed the suicide to have been delib- 
erately plann'd. In one, which was 
addressed to Mrs. Randolph, he assured 
her that provision had been made 
whereby all his property would go to 
her. The letter declared that every 
dollar of which he was possessor had 
bten gained honestly and by hard 
work. Among other letters was one 
for Mr. Edison, and also one for Mrs. 
Edi.'ion. Tlie contents of these letters 
were not mad-i public.

John Iverson Introduces 

Telling Evidence in 

Numaniville Case. 

Hospital Physician to 

Testify Insanity Was 

Result of Alcoholism. 

Archille Numaniville, who is suing 
John Iverson, a local carpenter, for 
$10,000 for alleged Injurieg which 
are said to have caused the plaintiff 
to be insane for three months, has 
offered all his evidence. 

This morning Mr. Iverson began 
the introduction of testimony tend- 
ing to show that he did not glvo 
Numaniville the beating the latter 
alleges. also that the mental de- 
rangement that the plaintiff suffered 
was not caused by a blow from the 
defendant, but was brought on him- 
self bj' tlie excessive use of alcoholic 
drinks, aided, possibly, by a blow in 
the head, received after the famous 
tishing trip to Cloquet river. 

One witness, A. J. Bouchard, who 
wa.s a member of the party on the 
fishing trip, testitled this morning. 
He was subpoenaed by Numaniville, 
but was not put on the stand by 
the plaintiff. Bouchard's testimony 
was strongly Th Iverson's favor. 

The witness corroborated Iverson 
in all the main points of the latter's 
story of the trip. His testimony 
tended to show that the only timw 
Iverson used any force on Numani- 
ville was at Roy's camp, after Nu- 
maniville had applied a vile name to 
Iverson, and was slapped for it. Mr. 
Bouchard claimed that Numaniville 
was very drunk and quarrelsome by 
the time the camp was reached, and 
wanted to pick a quarrel with al- 
most anybody In the crowd. 

The witness claimed that the day 
following the slapping episode the 
men tramped the woods, fished, etc., 
and there were no indications but 
that everything was quiet and se- 
rene among tlie members of the 
party. The testimony showed that 
Numaniville even rode part of the 
way home in Iverson's rig, although 
he went as a guest of Bouchard. 

Mr. Bouchard further testified that 
a few days following the fishing trip 
he saw Numaniville In Iverson's yard 
with his head bandaged. The plain- 
tiff told the witness that In chopping 
wood the ax .'Struck a clotlies line and 
flew back, striking him and making a 
bad cut in his head. 

The testimony tended to show that 
Numaniville, when suspected of in- 
-sanity, had made statements to Bou- 
chard to the effect that Mrs. Numani- 
ville was unfaithful to him. One such 
statement is said to have been made in 
Mrs. Numanivllle's presence. 

Bouchard said he was at Numani- 
vllle's home one afternoon when the 
latter refused to touch his dinner until 
he, the witness, had partaken of some 
of it to show that It was not poisoned. 

According to Bouchard's testimony 
he secured treatment at St. Luke's 
liospital for Numaniville, at the lat- 
ter's request and that he also took 
charge of about S500 which the latter 
had in a baking powder can and re- 
quested him not to give to Mrs. Nu- 
maniville. Bouchard said Numaniville 
gave no reason why he did not want 
his wife to have possession of his 

Among the witnesses called for the 
defense Is Dr. Thomas Thayer, assist- 
ant superintendent of the state as>'- 
lum at Fergus Falls. Minn., where Nu- 
maniville was kept under treatment 
for three months. Dr. Thayer will 
give expert testimony. It is under- 
stood that the hospital records to be 
produced will show that Numanivllle's 
condition was ascribed to alcoholism, 
and not to the result of any blow. 
Dr. Thayer, it Is said, had daily charge 
of Numanivllle's case for three months 
and will testify as to the correctness 
of the records.

Asphalt Pavement on 

London Road is Being 


Property Owners Are 

Apparently in Favor 

of Project 

Petitions are being circulated now for 
one of the biggest municipal improve- 
ments planned for this J'ear, the Improve- 
uit-nt of London road from Eighth ave- 
nue east to P'orty-thlrd avenue east. It 
is planned to lay out a roadway of the 
greatest possible width and pave with 
asphalt, to make the finest driveway in 
the city. The proi>osed pavement will 
join the asphalt pavement of Superior 
street at Eighth avenue east. The con- 
tinuation of Londan road from Fifty- 
thud avenue east is already paved with 
tar macadam. 

Property holders are signing the peti- 
tions readily a»id it is .said no trouble 
will be experienced in securing the re- 
quired number of signatures. Prominent 
lesidenta of the East end and Lakeside, 
who iiave occasion to use the road often 
are backing the movement and strong 
influences are behind the petition. 

The Automobile club is also interested 
directly on account of the popularity of 
Ijondon road as a driveway. For years. 
It has been used by automobile and horse 
owners ag the finest thoroughfare in the 
city for driving and its Improvement 
would make it ideal. In the past, the 
dust has been sofiu;ihlng of an objection, 
but with an asphalt pavement, it woulii 
be even more popular than it has been. 

I.<ondon road is now the principal thor- 
oughfare between the city. East end and 
l..akeside. Superior street is used by the 
slrt't^t cars and Grey.solon ruad is Just 
undergoing Improvements calculated to 
make it superior to London road. But 
the improvement of Ixjiulon road with an 
asphalt pavement would assure continued 
popularity for It and horsemen and au- 
tomobile owners will work for the suc- 
cess of the movement.

Made in Behalf of Kentucky Man 
Sentenced to be Hanged. 

Lexington, Ky., Feb. 17.— On the p!3a 
that he had been raised in a "godless 
community," seventy-flve citizens of 
Breathitt county, Kentucky, have sent 
letters and petitions to Governor Pat- 
terson of Tennessee, pleading for a 
commutation of the death .sentence of 
Edward Turner, formerly of Breathitt 
county, %vho has been sentenced to 
hang on Feb. 27 for the murder of 
his wife last April. The plea of the 
petitioners l.s that Turner was brought 
up In a godless community and tiiat 
he never had an opportunity to know 
right from wrong. They point out 
that his parents died on the same 
night, "when he was very young, and 
that he had lived about as V)est as he 
could. They claim the wickedness of 
his wife unbalanced his mind and that 
he killed her, not because he hated her, 
hut because he loved her.

Steel Plant Specifications 

Are Satisfactory to the 


Vast Amount of Prelim- 
inary Work to be 

Georg« L. Reis, vice president of the 
Minnesota. dteeJ company, and who has 
active charge of the building plans of 
the United States Steel oorpoi^tion, In 
regard to the proposed plant at .Spirit 
Lake, returned yesterday from New 
York, where he was in consultation 
with the committee having in cliarge 
plans for the Duluth and G'ary steel 

"The oommitt^ appro v»>d all the 
plans we submitted to it i>elative to 
operations in tnis ciVy," aaid Mr. Reds 
iLKiay, "and uppaixnlly the members 
were well satlsiied with the work ac- 
complished thus far. The general pub- 
lic has absolutely no conception of tho 
vast amount of preliminary vv-ork 
nec&ssary In a pwposition of this kind, 
or the time it takes to work otit all the 
deiiails. While the plans in general, as 
;,rei>arsd by us. have been approved, 
there yet remains a very great deal of 
U'eiail work yet to be done before ac- 
tual building operations can L»egin, as 
is the caae with all large undertakings 
of a similar natui>e. 

"Tlie committee of which I speak also 
has general supervision of building 
operatioixs at Gary, Ind. The two 
proposfkions are very similar in char- 
acter, aithoag'h, of course, the Duluth 
undertaking Is on a somewhat smaller 
scale than the one at Gary. Everj'- 
thing is going along In good shape lo- 
cally, and exccJlent pixjgress is l>eing 
made. As soon as all details are com- 
plete, aoiual construction work will be- 
gin. Exactly how soon this will be I 
c^onnot say." 

The casual visitor In Mr. Reis' offices, 
on the seventh floor of the Wolvin 
building, oan readily believe his state- 
ments relaUng to the vast amount of 


detail work that must be done with 
the plans. He has eight or ten men 
in the oftioe. all busily working over 
blue prints, that mean nothing to the 
average person, and the place has an 
air of activity that is contagious.

City Engineers Will Re- 
port Results of Sur- 
veys to Council. 

city Engineer T. F. McGilvray will re- 
port to the council tonight the results 
of a survey of possiible lines from the 
ends of the water system to the poor 
farm, together with the distance of ea^li 
and the amount of rock cutting neces- 
sary. He will report on two systems, in 
botii of which it would be nect-ssary to 
force the water. They are: 

A— From the end of the water sys- 
tem at I>uluth Heights on Highland ave- 
nu8 at Myrtle street along HighUind ave- 
nue to Locust street, on Jjocust street to 
Arlington avenue and on Ariiogion ave- 
nue to the poor farm. l>istance, 7,&o0 
feet; rock to be excavated, -W) cubic 

B— From the end of the system at 
Third avenue east and Mesabe avenue 
along MtKabe avenue and the Rice L-ake 
road to the poor farm. Distance, 10,153 
feet- rock to be excavated, 300 cubic 

It was thought at first that the end of 
the system at Duiuth Heights was high- 
er than the ptxjr farm and all points in- 
tervening, but Mr. McOilvray discover- 
ed in n.aping the survey thai there were 
several high i>oints between and a gravi- 
ty system would not bo practicable. 

The other system is long and more ex- 
pensive. It would run tluough long and 
•leavy up and down grades and the con- 
struction work would be difficult. In that 
ease also, it would be necessary to force 
the water through the pipes,

Little but routine business will come 
before the council tonight. The board of 
public works will present its award of 
the contract for the West end police 
station and there will probably be some 
discussion over Its confirmation. Jacob 
Jacobson, the lowest bidder, filed a check 
tor only J2(i0. while 10 per cent is re- 
(lulred. Emil Zauft was the next bid- 
der, with only $4 difference, and his 
check was sufficient, so he may receive 
the contract.

Answers Statements Made 
by the Citizens' Asso- 
ciation, Saturday. 

To the Editor of The Herald: 

In The Herald of Saturday the so- 
called Citizens' association, which is en- 
gineering the so-called open shop epi- 
demic in this city, had an article of a 
whole column In length with big black 
headlines. The article is purported to 
be an answer to statements claimed to 
be made by Mr. Shardt. I do not know 

what Mr. Shardt said, so that I am not 
going to have anything to say as to 
what wag said or wiiat was not said. 
But there are some statements in that 
article that I want to take issue with. 
They seem to be very much excited 
about some statements that have ap- 
peared ill the papers. They say that 
certain things have to be said in order 
to keep the men now locked out In line. 
If they have won, as they say, do 
they care whether the men stay In line 
or not? They must have a terribly low 
estimate of the mechanics of this city 
when they tell them they do not know 
enough to think for themselves, but are 
being led around like so many sheep, 
by so-called leaders. Those few who 
have lent themselves to the so-called 
Citizens' association to be used as tools 
for their own de.strurtlon, and that of 
their fellow workmen, are hailed .as 
wi.«e men. They have sold their birth- 
right for a mess of pottage. 

The men engaged in the present lock- 
out do not need to have their courage 
bolstered up by promises of success, 
neither are they going to be led astniy 
by taffy from the so-called Citizens' as- 
sociation or Jioy othor association. That 
they are going to be successful no sane 
man now doubts. When? Time will tell. 
Every union affected by this trouble is 
stronger today than they were when 
the lockout was started by the Build- 
ers' exchange. There Is no doubt but 
that the so-called open shop advocates 
thought they were going to win two 
months ago. They had an Idea that 
when the unions were confronted with 
Buch an arrav of talent as the Real Es- 
tate exchange, the Commercial club Mr. 
Drew, the architects, the so-called Citi- 
zens* association. Builders' exchange, 
etc.. that they would get down on their 
knees and beg for mercy. They must 
have expected this, according to the

cards they are asking men to sign In 
order to get work on the open shop 
basis. Anv man who lias signed one of 
those cards has certainly become a beg- 
gar. The character of the men engaged 
in the struggle for the so-called open 
sliop in this city is portrayed on those 
cards. They ainj to reduce the working 
man to beggary. We are not going to 
be scared liy the disTnal wail set up 
about conditions throughout the coun- 
try. We are very well posted about 
those things. Conditions In the United 
States today have been brought about 
by Just such men as are fighting union 
labor In this city today, men who are 
not for the general welfare so long as 
they attain their own ends. In con- 
clusion let me say that the building 
trades are not engaged in any strike, 
as the stntemeats of the so-called Citi- 
zens' iissoclatlon infers. The men were 
discharged by their employers because 
they were members of a union. We 
have been forced Into this fight. We 
are In It for principle, and we are go- 
ing to stay In It until victory Is ours. 
As to wliether or not this lockout is 
hurting business we will let the busi- 
ness men judge as to that. 

In closing their statement they say 
that work is progressing more rapidly 
now than under union conditions be- 
cause there are no restrictions on the 
number of men employed on buildings. 
This is a new one. We have been 
charged with almost everything, but 
tills is the first time we have been 
charged with limiting the number of 
men employed on liuildlngs. Yours 
truly. M. J. HARNEY.

Former Banker Enters 

Plea of Not Guilty on 


New Y'ork, Feb. 17.— Charles W. 
Morse, the former banker, organizer of 
the .Vmerioan Ice company, and the 
$120,000,000 Consolidated Steamship 
company, pleaded not guilty, before 
Justice Dowling today, to two charges 
of grand larceny. A hearing of tluj 
case was set for next Monday. 

When he was arraigned In court to- 
day, Morse's counsel kvformed the Jus- 
tice that Morse did not know what the 
specific charges against him were, and 
that the dl»trict attorney had refused 
permission for his counsel to examine 
the minutes of the grand Jury which 
indicted Morae. Counsel said, also, that 
he should apply to the court for au- 
thority to examine the minutes, and 
ask that one was not enough, 
and askc-d for two weeks' postpone- 
ment to frame his application. Assist- 
ant District Attorney Kresel argued 
that one week was enough time to 
allow Morse's counsel, and the hearing 
was set for next Monday. In the mean- 
time his rtounsel said he would decide 
whether to change or withdraw Morse's

trict attorney. They were arraigned

The Indictment on charges of perjury 
against each of the men grew out of

a motley array of drunks and vagrants. 
The boy was charged wi»h vagrancy and 
he pleaded guilty. 

By questioning. Judge Wlndom brought 
out the fact that the boy comes from a 
good family in St. i*au!. He has a good 
home, parents willing to do anything for

respected. But the boy was wild. He 
associated with fast companlon.s. He 
thought he didn't need to work in one 
place continually, so he threw up his 
job and came to Uuluth. Arriving here, 
he picked up with a cro^ on the Bow-

but he was content to hung around with

to make good his prtimise to go home.

Cincinnati, Ohio, Feb. 17.— Althougn 
they had appeared as substitutes for 
the National Bowling association 
champions. Smith and Dunbar of the 
Corinthian?, Newark, N. J., have won 
the international two-men champion-

designate members of the organiz- 
ation to participate in the champion 
events. Smith and Dunbar defeated 
the champions of the Canadian, the

champions were unable to compete 
and had ('.esignated Smith and Dun-

A Doctor Says It Weakens the Heart 

"In my opinion," says a well known 
German physician, "no one can truth- 
fully say that coffee agrees with him, 
as it has long since been proven that 
caffeine, contained in coffee. Is an in- 
jurious, poisonous substance which 
\vcakens and degenerates the heart 

"For this reason the regular use of 
coffee, soon or late, causes a condition 
■of undernourishment, which leads to 
variou.s kinds of organic disease. 

"Convinced of this f\ct, I have often 
sotight for some h.alihful L;ev».rar;fe to 
use instead of coffee. At last I fotmd 
the thing desired in Postum. Having 
had occasion to forbid pjople using 
coffee, whose hearts were arfect%l, I 
have recommended Postum as a bev- 
erage, since it Is free from all injurious 
or exciting substances. I know this 
from, results in my own family, and

Man Arraigned for Non- 
Support in Line for 

Judge Windom took upon hlmseif 
this morning the roler of mediator be- 
teen James Hood and wife of 2026 West 
First street, and he will probably be 
successful in bringing about a recon- 
ciliation between the two. Hood was 
arraigned for non-support, the court 
heard the evidence and the case was 
taken under advisement, while the 
judge held a private conference with 
the man and wife. 

Mrs. Hood testified that In the paat 
year she had received but $10 from 
her husband. He went away about u 
year ago, going to the range to work. 
He was home in October, .when a child 
was buried, didn't giVe his wife a 
cent, she claims, and went away again. 
He had tv.'o of his sons working with 
him all summer and the woman re- 
ceived their wages. 

Hood testified that he was paying 
his debts and was not able to send 
the woman any money. He talked as 
though he meant well enough, but waa

Certain Duiuthians who are post- 
ed on what the railroads are doing 
have It doped out that Japan is 
preparing for war with the United 

They base their suspicions on the 
fact that the Japanese government 
is securing large consignments of 
acetate of lime in the Duiuth terri- 
tory and shipping them to Japan. 
Acetate of lime Is a furnace by- 
product that Is understood to be 
used extensively by the Japs in the 
manufacture of their famous smoke- 
le.^;^ powder. 

Just prior to Japan's war with 
Russia, she rushed numerous ship- 
ments of the same material from this 
di.'-trict. and It Is to be assumed 
that the same held true of other 
districts where the by-product can 
be obtained. The material cannot be 
secured in Dul;uth, but in other parts 
of the district, through Wisconsin 
and Michigan, considerable quanti- 
ties are to be had. The con.sign- 
ments " go by way of the Head of 
llie Lakes to the Pacific coast, and 
thfcncf are shipped by boat to Japan. 

11 is a fact that such shipments 
are being made, and not a pipe 
dream, as some people might easily 
Imagine.' Whether Japan is prepar- 
ing for war, or whether the country 
is /making powder and not expecting 
iwar, or whether it has some other 
I use than the manufacture of pow- 
ider for acetate of lime. Is all con- 
■jecture, but it is true that in the 
past this substance has been used by 
the Orientals in making explosives, 
and that the biggest and hur- 
ried orders were received just be- 
fore and diuring the early stages of 
the war with Russia. Since that 
war the demand has almost entirely 
fallen off, so far as this district is" 
concerned, but in the last few weeks 
rush orders have b^en coming again, 
and several of them have been filled. 
Only last week three carloads of the 
by-product passed through Duiuth 
on their way to the Pacific coast. 


Milwaukee Road Extends Service as 
Far as Terry, Mont. 

Terry, Mont., Feb. 17.-— The Chicago, 
Milwaukee & St. Paul railway yester- 
day extended to this city the train 
service of the company's Pacific coast 
extension. The new line crosses the 
Yellowstone river for the first time at 
Terry. The train service is dally be-

kee & St. PauJ railway in building itsi 
Pacific coast extension has. It is an- 
nounced today, never bt>en equalled in

dertaking. lYack Is now being laid at 
the rate> of five miles per day, and by 
the end of the week the east and west 
track laying forces In Montana will

Well- Known Lake Cap- 
tain Dies at Erie, 

Word was received In Duiuth this 
morning of the death at Erie, Pa., of 
Capt. Charles Christy of the Anchor 
line boat.s, who wus as well known in 
Duiuth. probably, as any captiiln who 
ever made this port. He was the oldest 
ca.ptain In the service of tne Anchor 
line, both in age find tho number of 
years of service. He was 62 years of 
age at the time of death. 

Capt. Christy sailed into I>uluth for 
years on different boats. He was cap- 
tain of the China for several seasons 
on her trips to the Head ol the Lakes, 
:vnd brought the Tionesta on her first 
trip up the lakes, acting as her captain 
for some time after that. He was ap- 
pointed captain of nearly all the new 
Anchor line boats as they were put Into 
service. Last season he sailed the 
Wissahickon. a new freighter. Par- 
alysis caused his death. 


Success Magazine: The poor but near- 
honest young grocer had sold a bill of 
goods to the testy old gentleman, whoso 
daughter he intended to honor with his 
hand and shop, and for the first time 
in his business career he was troubled at 
being obliRed to palm off "Blinks Ccd- 
flsh" for "Jink's," and "U-needa-scrub" 
when "U-auto-wash-with Soap" was dis- 
tinctly specified. In the stony silence wiih 
which his stuck arguments were received, 
he felt a totally new sensation, which 
!nu.«'t have been embarrassment. 

That evening, when the suitor called, 
he was mot at the door by the old gen- 
ileman, who ushered him Into the parlor, 
and ignoring all hints about Miss Vir- 
ginia, persisted in eulogizing his wife's 
tlder sister. The young man fidgeted in 
his chair, and as he saw no way to lead 
to the momentous thing he had to say, 
dicldeu to blurt It out and have done 
with it. Had not Virginia said archly. 
"Ask papa— if you dare," and was not 
"nerve^' his principal asset? 

"Mr. Grouch," he began, "I have come 
to ask your consent to my m-m-marrylng 
your daughter." 

"I'm sorry," re!5ponded the old man 
pleasantly, "but Virginia's out Just at 
present. In fact, there has been so little 
demand for her lately that we have de- 
cided not to keep her In the future." 


"But we have plenty of her Aunt Maria 
on hand." he continued persuasively. 
"She's only 47, and hais two sets of teeth 
that cannot be told from the genuine a 
little way off. I'll admit that she's not 
as well known for beauty or vivacity as 
Virgle, but then she has substantial vir- 
tues that need no advertising; for in- 
stance, she makes better rag carpets than 
any other woman in'the country." 

"B-but I don't want any rag carpets; I 

"She's very thrifty and saving," the 
father, continued, ignoring the Interrup- 
tion, "and she won't cost you half as 
much to keep. Suppose you take Aunt 
Maria; I know you'll like her better than 
Virginia when yon get used to her. Al- 
thoiigh she's not Just what you asked for. 
I can assure you she Is In many respects 
.superior. Just to Introduce her, I'll make 
a special offer. I'll pay for the licens- 
and settle for the preacher to gel her otf 
my hands. You'll find she's not only .ius; 
aa good as Virginia, but cons'derably 
cheaper as wel'. Will you take her with

Small Army of Grand 

Opera Singers Invades 

the City. 

Alice Neilsen Says Amer- 
ican Singers Are Being 

The San Carlo Grand Opera company, 
169 strong, descended like a small army 
upon Duiuth this morning in a special 
train on the Omaha. In size alone this 
company resembled an army. In dis- 
cipline they fell away from the uniformi- 
ty of military precision, for they werii 
tired and hungry, and they beat it, to use 
a term foreign to grand opera atmos- 
phere, for room and the food that cheers 
the tired and hungry. 

Very few of the members of the San 
Carlo company have more than a work- 
ing accjuaintanco with the Englis.a 
language. Most of them are from 
either Sunny Italy or blue-skied Spain. 
The large chorus was Imported d.rect 
from the theaters of Italy, while the 
principals are from Spain and the music- 
loving countries of Southern Europe. 
Naples, Madrid, St. Petersburg. Berhn. 
Paris, London— of these centers of ar- 
tistic imjwrtance, they speak with a 
sangfroid and an European shrug of the 
shoulders tliat impresses and compels 

Dainty Alice Nielsen, whom we used to 
know and admire in the "Singing Girl." 
and other light opera successes, waa the 
center of attention. Perhaps It is because 
Miss Nielsen is an American girl, who 
has achieved a success In grand o#cra 
that one looks with Interest upon her 
efforts 'Miss Nielsen was discouraged by 
friends. She persisted and won, and 
now everyone seems anxious to see the 
little woman who had the courage to 
foi-sake a field where she reigned almost 
supreme and venture invo a more diffi- 
cult field of higher artistic atmosphere. 

Miss Nielsen reached Duiuth on the 
regular Omaha, not coming on the 
special "It is only a Question of time, 
I believe," said Miss Nielsen, "when 
America will produce as great singers 
as are produced in Europe at the pres- 
ent time, m Italy and the oiher countries 
of Europe, thev live in the atmosphere of 
music You might say they breathe mu- 
sic A boy in Italy can whistle the air 
of any of the great operas, and. more- 
over ho knows when the artist has made 
a mistake. We. of have not 
reached this stage, or knowledge of mu- 
sic- yet It will come, for the American 
people are Bhowlng more appreciation 
and knowledge of the better music eacii 
year " 

Mi-s.s Nielsen says that the American 
audiences are the most appreciative In 
the world. She doesn't believe that they 
appreciate the best music any more In 
Europe than they do here at home. She 
admits that in some ways they are pro- 

ducing more artists, because they have 
had several centuries the start of us. 
But she says that American women are 
making good In grand opi-ra; that mora- 
of them are studying for the operatic 
stage every year, and that gradually 
America is producing great singers. 
Artists Paid Too Much. 

"Ah, but artists get too iwueh," cam» 
the strange statement from Miss Niel- 
sen. • 

She was asked if she really meant 

"Honestly," came the reply. 'Two- 
thousand Is too much to pay a principal. 
They don't receive as much In Europe. 
Why .'thjuld they receive it here? It 
does seem strange, coming from me» 
doesn't 11? But 1 really mean it. 1 
don't think that impres-rarlos can afford 
to pay the great salaries they do. A 
singer gets more in America than in any 
other country. They get too miTch, and 1 
I'eally mean that." 

Miss Nielsen likes grand opera. Sh» 
will never return to light opera. Shu 
made her debut after ten months' study- 
In Italy, and she leaves no doubt of th» 
work and study compressed Into those 
ten months, when you asked how she did 
it so quickly. She has to work, and w<.rk 
hard, vet she Is in love with the worl( 
she has been Identified with lor the past 
four years.

ing at the Imperial opera house," she 
said. "The lake, the blue sky. the cold,

Acting on tho resolution introduced by 
Alderman Moore last Momlay night and 
passed by the council, calling upon the 
iwlioe to 3oe that th*j ordinance prohib- 
iting private apartments In saloons Is 
oomphed with. Chief Troyer issued an 
order today calling upon all members of 
the d^^partment to enforce the ordinance 
and n-itifylng th^m of its provisions. 

The officers today made the rounds of 
Um aaloons throughout the city and In 
•very case where the interior of a room 
was concealed from the sight of a per- 
«on in the ma;n part of the saloon, the 
proprietor was notiried to correct it Im- 
mediately and bring tho conditions wlth- 
lit t,ho onlinanoe. 

The ordinance pnjvides that no saloon i 

shall majntaln private apartments or 
wine rooms in any part of the saloon or 
In connection with It. No room or booth 
shall be entirely enclosed, or the interloi 
concealed by a door, screen, curtain or 
anv device, whatever. 

The enforcing of the ordinance brings 
consternation to a number of saloon 
keepers, who have fitted out their places 
with booths and private drinking apart- 
ments, which are used extensively by 
parties of men, who are averse to drink- 
ing at the bars. A strict interpretation of 
tho ordinance calls for the removal of 
everything, which would conceal the view 
of people outside, and public drinking 
places will be public in every respect. 
Chief Troyer says the ordinance will be 
enforced to the letter and numerous sa- 
ir>on proprietors are preparing to change 
the arrangements of their saloons to con-

Ice Boat Race. 

While there was too much wind yes- 
terday for pulling off the big Iceboat 
race that had been planned, two of the 
boats, the Ice "King, sailed by J. A. 
Kent, and the Hare, sailed by Joe Roth, 
had a race all by themselves, from Al- 
louez bav to the Yacht clubhouse on 
Park Point. The Ice Iving won by two 
minutes. The course was ten miles in 
length, and a heavy northwest wind 
was blowing. It was necessary to reef 
the sails to the last possible notch. 

Because the check he fUed with his 
bid was not 10 per cent of the bid, as 
required by the charter, the board of 
public works decided this morning, 
that Jacob Jacobsou should not receive 
the contract for the West end pollofa 
station, and the contract was awarded 
to Emll Zauft, subject to the approval 
of the council. 

Jacobson's bid was $7,195. while 
Zauffs |7,1!*9. The check filed by Jacob- 
son was only $2W, while Zauft tiled one 
for $S0<). The board decided that, as 
there was but $4 difference in the bids, 
and Zauft had complied with all condi- 
tions, while Jacobson had not, the 
West Duluth man should get the con- 
tract. The award will come before the 
council tonight for considei\)tion. 

A number of Second street property 
holders appeared before the board 
this morniiig and asked that the pro-

Was Between Two Rngry Mountain Lions, When Aid 

Came Unexpectedly. 

Chicago. Feb. 17.— A special cable to 
the Daily News from Tokio says: Dr. 
John Atkinson, the veteran Congrega- 
tional missionary at Kobe, Is dead. 
He was a mLnister in Iowa before com- 
ing to Japan in 1873. 

New Yoric, Feb. 17.— Word has been 
received in New York of the death, in 
Paris, of Valerian Grlbayedoff, writer, 
journalist and artist, the originator of 
newspaper illustrations in New York. 
He was born in ilussia 50 years ago, 
and came to America while still a boy. 
Two years after he arrived here, he 
came into prominence as an Illustrator 
and writer, and the Illustrations he 
made for his own articles were practi- 
cally the lirst ever printed in a newa- 
par>er in New York. From his sketches 
sprang the Sunday supplement, which 
has l>ecome 9o popular of late years. 
He left New, York In 1897, and there- 
after resided in Paris, where he died. 

New York. Feb. 17. — ^William 
Sells, son of one of the three brothers 
who organized the famous Sells 
Bros.' circus combination, died 
suddenly here today. He had been 
ill for several weeks, but his con- 
dition had been improving steadily 
of late, and it was believed he was 
on the road to recovery. Early to- 
day he had a sudden change for the 
worse, and died before a physician 
reached the house. Gastritis was 
given as the cause of death. He 
was 42 years old. 

William Sells was an adopted son of 
All^n Sells. He was known as the 
premier bareback rider of the world, 
John Robinson, the veteran showman, 
having given him that title. In 1892 
he branched out as a circus propri-

sideration. Mr. Macon, Arkansas, 
continued his policy of attacking all

Question Club Members Merely Hear 
Talks on Subject. 

-Members of the Question club were to 
have heard a debate on "Socialism ver- 
sus Single Tax," at their meeting at 
the public library yesterday afternoon, 
but through a misunderstanding, it was 
not held. 

Morris Kaplan, the Socialist orator, 
was not prepared to debate and Instead 
gave a talk on "Socialism." G. W. C. 
Ross, who was to have taken the sln- 
gl»-tax side of tho debate, also spoke. 
A debate will be held at a later date. 

Next Sunday afternoon, C E. Lovett 
will talk on "The Life of Gen. Grant."

Don Marquis in Uncle Remus's Maga- 
zine: Editorial writers on a thousand 
papers have been telling Just exactly 
what Is the matter with the country's 
financial system. After an editorial writ- 
er puts tile financiers to rights, ne bor- 
rows a quarter and goes out to lunch.' 
To a superficial mind there might ap- 
pear to be some Incongruity between the 
two actions; it might seem that a man 
who had to borrow the quarter might 
not, after all, be the safest person for 
the national legislators to hearken to in 
financial matters. But there Is no In- 
congruity. It has been observed that 
babes and sucklings speak wisdom. That 
13 because they are out of the hurly-bur- 
ly of grown-up life, they are separated 
from Its heat and passion, ttiey are able 
to look upon It with unprejudiced eyes. 
It Is nothing to them; they have no per- 
sonal Interest In It to bias their Judg- 
ment; It does ont Impinge upon their 
sense of the practical; they can look up- 
on it calmly, because It does not con- 
cern them. "Thus their Judgments, when 
they deign to consider some phase of 
adult life for a moment, are candid; that 
is the reason that out of their mouths 
Cometh wisdom. All this applies to a 
certain extent to crltlcg of all sores— be- 
cause a man ca't write a poem It does 
not necessarily foUw that he Isn't a bet- 
ter Judge of poetry than one that can; 
because he has to pawn his watch It does 
not follow that he cannot give really val- 
uable advice as to the manner in which 
the banking business of the nation should 
be conducted. Plato— or maybe It was 
Socrates— contended that the perfect 
state would be ruled by philosophers. 
I'hilosophers, children, and certain 
classes of the Insane adult, are all alike 
in one respect; they possess In common 
the quality of detachment. Indeed, It 
might not be a bad Idea to corral a 
bunch of the Insane and set tjiem to 
making laws for the country; these have 
all the detachment of the child or the 
philosopher, and frequently as much 
brain activity as both put together. They 
would give no opinions for fear or favor, 
for they exist in a world of their own. 
They are as greatly touched, perhaps, by 
the fate of a cat as by the throes of an 
empire. They may be depended upon to 
bring a beautifully Impartial viewpoint 
to bear upon all human problems. This 
sch<^me of ours for getting absolutely 
Just laws made would, moreo%'er, provide 
a future for murderers who have escaped 
hanging on the ground.s of insanity, and 
also— but we seem to have wandered from 
the financial sltu&tlon. That is the trou- 
ble about being relentlessly logical.

The train was rushing through a wild 
gorge m the Rocky Mountains, says the 
St. Louis Globe-Democrat. On the 
right rose a perpendicular wall of rock 
hundreds of feet high. From the car 
windows on the left the passengers 
could look straight downward to a 
foam-covered stream, boiling over it^ 
bowlder-strewn bed— so far below the 
track th.U the roar of the torrent 
was lost m the gentler rumble of the 
train. , , ,. 

-Ticklish bit of engineering this, re- 
marked the as he drew in 
his l>ead and relighted his pipe. 

"It certainly was," agreed the red- 
headed man m the corner. "I travel 
through these mountains often, but fa- 
miliarity with the scenes has not yet 
dulled my admiration of the genius and 
courage of the men who build such 
reads as this." 

"But you never heard the name of a 
single man concerned in It. did you, 
unless It was tho fellows who furnished 
the money?" asked the traveler from 
Duluth. ^,^„ 

"N—o; can't say that I ever did, re- 
plied the red-headed man. 

"Of course not; and you probably 
never will. The men who do the work 
of this kind don't do It for fame. They 
do it because It's their business. But 
tlie actual building of a railroad in a 
mountainous country is not such a 
great achievement as it looks to the 
passenger who rides over It. It's very 
.much like the construction of a steel 
skyscraper. The builders, that is, the 
men who do the work, must have clear 
heads and plenty of grit, but their 
work Is laid out for them. All they 
have to do is to follow the plans; the 
genius is in the head of the man who 
makes the plans. But you can draw 
the designs for a skyscraper in a 
steam-heated office with mahogany 
desks and velvet rugs. The man who 
makes the plans for a railroad has to 
eo over every foot of the ground him- 
self and then he has to lay out every 
detail of its construction from end to 
end The builders simply follow his 
blue prints. Yes, siree, the ciWl en- 
a-lneef is a great man. and yet he 
couldn't do much either if it wasn't 
for the fellows who go ahead and pick 
out the way. It was the civil engineer 
w-ho brought the railroad through this 
Korce but it was the surveyor who told 
him where it would have to go. and you 
cAU bet your life It's no easy job to run 
Tune along the middle of a perpen- 
dicular wall of rock 1.000 feet high. 1 

remember " 

"Ah " sighed the rod-headed man m 
the corner with relief, "I thought 
we were working around to a story. 
But don't let me Interrupt you. 

The traveler from Duluth hesitated, 
but seeing that the red-headed man a 
interest was sincere, he went on. 

"I remember a little piece of work 
very much like this one here that 
got me into the tightest place I was 
ever in in my life. It was up In 
British Columbia. We were laying 
out a branch line for the Canadian 
Pacific down through the Selkirks. 
You know. I've no doubt, that the 
Selkirks are among the loftiest 
mountains on the continent. They 
certainly put up some pretty stiff 
obstacles to railroad construction. 
At one point we found we'd have to 
run the line around the face of a 
cliff overhanging the Columbia river. 
It involved a nasty bit of engineering 
and we made half a dozen surveys 
to get a better route, but every one 
presented difHculties that were still so there was nothing left for 
us to' do but take in that cliff. It 
was a solid granite wall, and it ros* 
straight from the water's edge to a 
"height that varied from 150 to 200 

feet. The desired prrade made It 
neces.sary to run the line along tha 
face of the rook at a height of 12.5 
feet from the Along this line 
the construction force would have to 
blast a ledge over a mile long. But 
that wasn't our funeral. 

'The cllfC followed the trend of the 
river, which curved here. Now, 

you can't see around a corner with 
a transit instrument any more than 
you can with the naked eye, and In 
order to run our line as well iS to 
make a proper examination of the 
rock along the line we had to rig 
up a footway of heavy timbers, like 
a painter's scaffold, suspended from 
the top of the bluff. Along this 
narrow, swaying path, over 100 feet 
above the foaming river, the transit 
men. the lev^lers and the rodmen 
had to work. It was a ticklish, and we were glad when 
we were through with it. But 

dangerous situations are common In 
the life of the surveyor in the 
mountains, and I mention these de- 
tails merely to explain tha predica- 
ment I got into. 

"I was in charge of the surveying 
squad, and one morning early I 
went out by myself on the footway 
to take a look at a particularly bad 
turn that we had to get around, the 
worst place along the entire face of 
the cliff. There was a shoulder here 
Jutting out a ways, and on each 
.side of it was a break in the cliff. 
glvli% a gentle slope to the top, 
which at that point was only about 
thirty feet above the footway. Be- 
tween the two breaks, however, was 
a sharp outward curve, as I have 
said, where the rock rose straight 
up, in some places hung over our 
frail perch. I worked my way on 
the boards around to the 
point of this shoulder to make a 
personal Inspection of the rock there. 
As I turned the corner you can 
Imagine my astonishment when I saw 
.standing on the scaffold facing me 
and not. over thirty feet away, an 
enormous mountain lion. 

"I didn't move any further in 
that direction. For a min,ute I didn't 
move at all. Neither did the lion. 
He was as much surprised as I was. 
but not as badly geared. He stood 
there switching hU tail and looking 
at me, and I stood there .shaking all 
over and looking at him. To go 
forward on that narrow .scaffold, with 
no support, on one side but the air 
and none on the other side but the 
rock wall that in some places was as 
smooth as a plate, was a ticklish 
proposition, but to work backward 
was a great deal And yet 
I knew it wouldn't do to turn my 
back on that yellow devil, who was 
sizing me up to see where he'd 
better bite first. There was only one 
way out. and that was to back out, 
for I had no weapon of any kind, 
except a pocketknife. So, keeping 
my eyes fixed on the lion, I started 
back, feeling carefully for a footing 
like a tightrope walker. The min- 
ute I began to move the beast began 
to follow me. step by step, keeping 
the same distance from me as at 
first but not allowing me to In- it. I have always understood 
that mountain lions were rank cow- 
ards, and my own experience has 
proved that to be the rule, but for 
some rea.son or other this fellow was 
an exception. He could have turned 
around and gone the other way. and 
I wouldn't have bothered him at 
all. But he didn't seem to think 
about that, nor to worry about where 
he'd light if he should Jump. I 
looked for him to drop on his belly 
every minute and get ready for a 

spring, and I don't believe my heart 
beat once all the time I was backing 
away. But for the present he seem- 
ed to be satisfied to keep me within 
easy reach. 

"I had felt my way backward about 
thirty feet. I suppose, when I heard a 
wild .scream behind me. I had to make 
a quick grab for a projecting rock to 
keep from falling off. and when I look- 
ed behind me 1 had to get a tighter 
hold to keep from Jumblng off, for com- 
ing along the footway from the other 
side was another Hon as big as the 

The surveyor paused to relight his 
cigar and alU»w his hearers to con- 
sider the situation. Then he proceeded 
with his story. 

"I might tell you that I kept my 
nerve and a clear head and did some 
brilliant Intellectual stunts right then 
and there, but I didn't. I was scared 
so bad I didn't think at all, but Just 
clung to that rook and waited for them 
to get busy. I didn't even think that 
the water below would give me an 
easier end. for after the first Impulse 
that came from lion No. 2 announced 
his presence It never occurred to me 
to Jump. And I'm mighty glad it 
didn't, for I wouldn't have been here 
now If I had. 

"Well, those two beasts screamed 
good morning to each other— they were 
-.nates. I've no doubt and then commenc- 
ed slipping toward me. Hiive you ever 
seen a cat stalking a bird? VV«U1. that's 
the way they came. First one paw for- 
ward; then a pause, with the other 
paw raised and held for an instant then 
another step and a pause in the same 
way. It seemed an hour they were 
coming, though It was only a few sec- 
onds. Now they were thirty feet from 
me; now they were twenty-five, now 
ihey were twenty, now they were fif- 
teen; now they were crouching for the 
spring. 1 shut my eyes. Then as a 
voice from heaven came a whisper from 
" "Drop your arms!' 
"Automatically I let loose of the rock. 
Luckily 1 didn't have sense enougn to 
ask any questions. The same moment I 
felt a rope drop and tighten up under 
my arms and with a quick pull I was 
drawn up the face of that rock before 
you could have said Jack Robinson. It 
had to be a mighty quick pull, for, as 
the boys told me, those two devlla 
st rang for me as I started up. but In- 
stead of enfolding me in a fond embra(^ 
they grabbed each other In midair, and, 
biting, clawing and screaming they 
turned over and over in their fall until 
they disappeared beneath the waters of 
the roaring Columbia."

Moonlight on St. Louis river in the 
Winter time has been chosen as the 
most ideal combination of Duluth's 
natural beauty that has yet been 
found, and the Boat club members and 
their friends are exceedingly enthusi- 
astic over the pelasures of the winter. 
Canoeing in the moonlight is not a 
whit more attractive than skating in 
the moonlight, according to those who 
have tested both forms of dt-llght and 
the river and the branch boat house 
are receiving much attention. Yester- 
day many guests were entertained at 
the club house. Another party of en- 
thusiasts will go up this evening, and 
for tile week-end several parties have 
been arranged. The Journey to ihe 
club house may be made by train. 
The ice of the river, due to the cli- 
matic conditions which have prevail?! 
and which can be explained perfectly 
by those who know just what is need- 
ed to make perfect ice, has made the 
river as smooth as very smooth glass, 
and it's just grand to skate on. The 
return is made by the river. " 

Snowshocs and skis and and other 
paraphernailia which go with red 
xnackinaws, also figure prominently 
In the delightful times which are en- 
Joyed. The members are almost re- 
gretting the coming of spring and mor-- 
particularly the time when the moon 
will go behind a cloud.

When one comes to consider the num-

which one finds eventually Is neces- 
sary for a material existence, the ex- 
travagant and unnecessary demands 

under which one struggles in the effort 
to have Florida strawberries for break- 
fast. Florida pie plant for dinner. Flor- 
ida grape fruit at the same meal, and 
Florida oranges for luncheon, seem to 
fade into a strenuous and useless 
reaching after the less spiritual and 
less vital things of life, and although 
one roaches just that conclusion, the 
strawberries taste many times better 
in February, when they are expensive, 
than in the later summer months, when 
they may be had almost like June itself 
by the poorest comer. 

Tn Quest of Siylg! 

While, of course, the styles for the ap- 
proaching season will run the whole gamut 
from the plainest to most ornate, still, garments 
will more than ever depend upon the excelleitce 
of cut and cleverness of workmanship to pro- 
duce that correct "Style Idea" which captivates! 

In order to successfully cope with this all en- 
grossing question, to retain our position of fash- 
ion pre-eminence, and to further the reputation 
of the "Gidding Label" as a "Style Stamp" — 
our Messrs. Gidding are spending several weeks 
in closest touch with the arbiters of fashion; 
separating the tinsel from the gold, and casting 
the multitudinous "manufacturer's mistakes" 
from their consideration. 

The Logical Sequence of this close observa- 
tion, aggressive energy and innate taste, con- 
centrated on the one object of Woman's dress; 
together with the financial advantages and pur- 
chasing prestige of two of the best equipped ap- 
parel houses in the country, eminently fits us to 
lift our shpwing out of the domain of the "me- 
diocre" — This affords you the opportunity of se- 
lecting your New Garment from among the 
most expressive examples of "Tailor's Art," rich 
in that intangible "Something" termed "Style."

The Story of ''Aida." 

Aida win be the opera given tonight 
at the opening of the three nights' en- 
gagement of the San Carlo Grand Opera 
company. The story erf the opera Is the 

At the period when the Pharaohs ruled 
over Egypt, Aida, daughter of Amon- 
asro, king of Ethiopia, having fallen a 
prisoner into the hands of the Egyptians, 
and being brought to Memphis, was giv- 
en as a slave by their king to his daugh- 
ter, Amneiis, who, captivated by the 
grace and beauty of the unknown maid, 
took her into favour as a friend and 
sister. Radames, a young captain of the 
king's guard, secretly beloved by Am- 
neris, on beholding Aida falls In love 
with her, and his passion is reciprocated 
by Aida. The proud daughter of Pharaoh, 
suspecting a rival in her slave, swears 
vengeance should her doubt prove a 
certainty. Meanwliile, war is again de- 
clared between Egypt and Ethiopia and 
Radames, appointed leader of the army, 
departs from Memphis to fight the 
Ethiopians, who. headed by their king, 
have invaded Egypt and invested The- 
be.s. The enemy defeated, Radames enters 
the delivered city victorious, laden with 
spoils and followed by the prisoners, 
among whom is Amonasro himself, dis- 
guised as an officer. 

Through tlie intercession of Radames 
the prisoners are set free, with the ex- 
ception of Amonasro, who being recog- 
nized as Aida's father is retained with 
her, when as a reward for his services 
the king grants to Radames the hand of 
his daughter, Aninerls. 

Amonasro, in his captivity, having no- 
ticed the mutual affection existing be- 
tween Radames and Aida, resolves to 
take advantage of it for the destruction 
of his enemies, as tJiere is between the 
two nations a new \war impending. Find- 
ing that a secret meeting was appointed 
between tiie lovers at night, near tlie 
temple of Isls. he conceals himself with- 
in hearing and obtains information of 
the plan of the war, incautiously reveal- 
ed by Radames to Aida. At this moment 
Rampliis, tile high priest of Isls. emerg- 
ing from the temple with Amneris, sud- 
denly tjurprises Radames, who, accused 
<yi having betrayed to the enemy his 
country's cause, gives himself up as a 
prisoner to Ramphis. Ramadcs, brought 
to Judgment and condemned by the 
sacred council to be buried alive. Is visit- 
ed by Amneris, who offers him pardon 
from the king on condition that ne re- 
nounces Aida forever. On his refusal, 
and as the stone is already enclosing him, 
he discovers Aida by his side, who has 
contrived to penetrate into the tomb, anj 
is come to prove the depth of lier con- 
stancy and love by sharing his fate.

By Kate ^Vallace Clements. 

When Mrs. Spaulding went to , the 
county orphan asylum., she hadn't the re- 
motest idea of bringing home the wee 
mite of humanity she did. On the con- 
trary, she needed a half-grown girl largo 
enovigh to wash dishes, run errands, and 
otherwise assist with household duties, 
now that she was getting on In years. 

"A good-sized girl, capable and will- 
ing," was what she asked the matron 

"Come this way." answered that per- 
son: "1 think we have just the girl tor 

In going to the section of the building, 
where the larger girls were domiciled 
they had occasion to pasg through the 

In this room a number of litttle ones 
were playing. One dark-eyed little elf 
caught hold of Mrs. Spaulding's gown. 

"My, but isn't she pretty!" exclaimed 
the visitor, looking down at a dark, 
roguish face. "How old is she?" 

"She must be almost three, as near as 
we can reckon," answered tlie matron. 
"She Is of Italian parentage." she wenl 
on. "Her father, a poor, strolling musi- 
cian, sick and despondent, put an end t < 
his life. The child was found In the room 
with his Dody— dreadful, wasn't it? And 
such a dear little thing, too— tell the lady 
vour name, dear." 

"Tlldywlnks," lisped the child. 

"I'crhaps her name is Matilda," ven- 
tured Mrs. Spaulding; "it couldn't be 
possible anyone called the child such a 
heathenish name." 

"She won't be here very long," said 
the matron; "some rich lady will adopt 

She lifted the child In her arms as sh? 
spoke, while the dark eyes of the little 
one were turned upon Mrs. Spaulding. 

Suddenly the child stretched out her 
arms— "Mamma," she cried— "Tildy's 
momma." Oh, what music In that word 
to the heart of the childless woman; It 
was the keynote to the doorway of her 
heart. She tried to put the child away 
from her. to struggle with a temptation; 
but the little one was not to be put 
down; she clung closer to her newly 
made friend. 

Only In dreams had the woman felt 
the clinging baby arms, the warm pres- 
sure of baby lips only anticipation— 

never till now— realization. 

"Come. Tildy, kiss the lady pood-by." 
It the matron's voice she heard. 

She was moving on, expecting her 
visitor to follow, but Mrs. Spaulding was

Mail Orders Given Prompt and Careful Attention I 

standingr etlU, a peculiar expression on 
her face as she said: 

"I don't think 1 want that girl 1 spoke 
about; I've cnanged my mind. I think." 
ht'Sltatlngly ; ""I'll take this one." 

Once outside the gray stone building 
she wondered at her doing. Btaid. middle 
aged Bessie Spaulding taking a baby for 
adoption. Siie smiled as she thought of 
her neighbors' criticism. Siie was pre- 
pared for It all. 

Thirteen years passed. The child that 
^rs. Spaulding has taken to her heart 
could indeed be classed as "a good sized 
girl." She was in lier sixteenth year. A 
tail, beautiful girl, with dark, ilasiilng 
eyes and rich brown complexion. 

She proved to be a great comfort to 
her foster parents. A lovins sunshiny 
nature, perfectly content with ner humble 
surrounding.?, as yet not longing for the 
finery to set her wondrous beauty off. 
She was so young, scarcely more than a 

Her companions were the squirrels 
and the birds. Perhaps, later on, she 
would long for better things. She talked 
to the birds, slie sang to them— ah; but 
she sang to everyone. Through the live- 
long day she sang Joyous notes, like 
the calling of a bird. 

Once a stranger passing, paused to lis- 
ten to that sweet voice, and listening ex- 

"Bravo! Bravol" 

Slio wondered what he meant— she, this 
innocent child of nature. 

"Such a strange man, mother," she 
.said when she sat at her feet in the 
twllght. "Do I sing very well?" she 

"Well enough to please mother," came 
the soft answer, and slie was content. 

The next Sabbath while she sang In 
the village choir a dark face was uplift- 
ed in mute admiration; it was the man 
who called out bravo to her while she 

She saw him stop and speak to her 
faster parents. She watched her mother 
place lier hand on her heart, while the 
color died from her face. 

That night as she lay awake she heard 
voices from below. It was her foster 
parents. She caught the words: 

"We must ke'-p her from the choir, 
John. My God! he'll take lier from us." 

She had a vague impression that the 
dark stranger waa a relative. She knew 
the history of her. own origin, that her 
rightful parents came from Italy. Per- 
haps he had com© to take her away. As, 
but .she would not go; no, never. 

For a time she ceased to sing. When 
the spring came, all her joyousness re- 
turned. She sang with the birds, notes 
sweeter than the nightingale. How could 
she be otherwise than in harmony with 

She was sitting In the garden singing 
a bright little melody; it seemed to come 
from her very heart. She was conscious 
of a presence, and raising her eyes saw 
the stranger— he who would take her 

Gathering up her work and garden hat. 
she would have rushed into the house, 
but he stood in her pathway. 

"Ah, mademoiselle, listen," he pleaded. 
"IJK) you want to become rich, famous, 
queen among women?" 

She caught the words "rich, famous." 
Her breath came in little gasps. Then 
she bent her dark head and listened. She 
was only a woman. To be prai.sed. ad- 
mired, gifts cast at her feet; to become a 
prima donna. Ah, the temptation waa too 

"Give me time to think," she pleaded; 
"only time to think." ^„ , 

Days, weeks, months flew by. Tlldy- 
wlnks drooped and pined. Would she 
stay with the dear old folks now that 
they needed her? Or, was It better 
to go away and come back rich and 

One night before the footUght.s would 
bring sufficient money to the 
farm. No need then for father to toll 
and mother to worry. It seemed the path 
of duly. ^ , , 

Only a week longer when he would 
come for his answer. What, oh, what 
would she say? 

John Spaulding's words uttered years 
ago came true: "Shell run away," he 
said. , , ^ 

The little white bed with the coverlet 
undisturbed told Its own story, with the 
tear-stained note pinned on the ares.slng 

'I'm going away," It read, "to study 
music and have my voice cultivated. 
When I've grown rich and famous I will 
come back. Not till thefl. Forgive me 
and good-by. TILDY.' 

"Gone." cried the frantic mother; gone 
to become an actress." 

To the mind of these simple country 
folk her future career was looked upon 
in the light of a disgrace. Notiilng ap- 
peared quite 80 appalling as the life of an 
astress. Involuntarily lliey associated It 
with scant apparel and rouged face. She 
was dead to them! As dead as if they 
had seen her body lowered under six feet 
of ground. . . ,_ ^ 

Ten years passed, bringing naught but 
adversity to John gpaulding. The crops 
had failed, many of his choicest cattle 
liad died. Poverty had come to them, 
grim, dire poverty. 

Better sell tlie place out before It would 
go to rack and ruin. Oh! how they loath- 
ed to part with it, the roof that had shel- 
tered them for many years. Still, the 
creditors must be appeased. 

"She promised to come back some day," 
she murmured. The tears fell fast and 
tlilck on Mrs. Spaulding's faded gown. 
"She will find only strangers here," she 
said bitterly. 

A letter had come from the agent that 
week, stating that a purchaser had be^-n 
found. He. the agent, would run down 
with the party toward the close of the 
week, and new- why. it was Thursday! 

Surely this was the close of the week. 

"If Tildy were only here." She clung 
to the strange name through all these 
years. Yes, If the child were here she 
might comfort her. 

Poor old soul! Through her tear- 
dlmmed eyes she saw a carriage drive up 
the pathway, stopping at the gate. The 
future occupant of her home, no doubt. 
It would never do to let them witnies her 
grief; she must brush the tears away. She 
bent her face closer over the worn coat 
she was mendlnff. She heard the soft 
rustle of garments, while the odor of vio- 
lets came to her. 

The woman must be rich to wear such 
beautiful clothes. What could she want 
with the farm? She almost hated her. 
Waa she not taking the roof from over 
their heads? 

"Well, now. that's what I call a gen- 
erous offer." 

It was the agent who spoke, bland and 

"What do you say to that. Mrs. Spauld- 
ing?" he went on. "The lady says you 
may remain for awhile; until autumn. It 
will give you time to look about and—" 

"We don't want to remain," broke in 
old John Spaulding, seated In the chim- 
ney eorner, with hands hardened by toil 
folded in a helpless sort of fashion across 
his knee. "No, no," he muttered, "we 
can't take favors, leastwise from strang- 
ers. Can we, I^lsbia?" 

His wife shook her head sadly. 

"It's a very kind offer," she said, "but 
we cannot accept it." 

Then the stately woman oame to her 
&lde, ao close that the flowers in her 
bodice touched the bowed head. She 
laid a white Jeweled hand on her should- 

"You cannot take It?" asked a sweet, 
musical voice. "Not even from me? Don't 
you know me, mother?" 

"Not Tildywinks?" 

She stood before them, beautiful and 
smlWng. It was she who had pur- 
chased the old liome. "The bread cast 
upon the waters had Indeed come back." 

"Tell me, Tildy, darling," asked the 
elder woman, looking at her through 
tears of Joy, "you are not an actress? 
You don't sing in-" 

"Only sacred music, mother," she an- 
swered. "Knowing your views on the 
subject, I have respected them. In the 
world of mu.«dc I am known as—" 

She whispered a name of whose fame 
had reached even that quiet little hamlet. 

"Then you are Mademoiselle — " 

She silenced the lips with a kiss. "To 
the world, yes; but to you let me al- 
ways be plain Tildywinks."

Custer, the county seat of Custer county, 
In a limestone formation. Is believed by 
geologists to be an extinct geyser chan- 
nel. The national monument will embrace 
are area of 1,280 acres. 

This cave, which was explored as late 
as 1900, has been found to consist of a 
series of chambers connected by narrow 
passages with numerous galleries, the 
walls of which are encrusted 'with a mag- 
nificent layer of calcite crystal. The 
opening of the cave Is situated in Hell 
canyon, the wall of which are high and 

The surface of the country In which the 
cave is located consists of a high rolling 
limestone plateau about 6,000 feet above 
sea level. The area is almost entirely 
covered by a forest of bull pine, a con- 
siderable portion of which is merchant- 
able, while the remainder consists of a 
vigorous young growth. 

The Jewel cave national monument will 
now be given permanent pi-otection by 
virtue of the act of June 8, 1906, which 
provides that objects of scientific inter- 
est may be declared national monuments 
if such action is deemed necessary for 
their preservation and protection. . 

Police Arrest One Man 

and Are Searching 

for Another. 

Acting on information furnished by 
a woman, said to have been scorned by 
her former lover, the police of Superior 
have arrested Archie Kennedy on sus- 
picion of being connected with a coun- 
terfeiting gang that is believed to have 
been working at Billings Park last 
year. The police are on the trail of 
James Chase, who was another mem- 
ber of the alleged gang, and who is 
said to have left Superior last fall. 

Miss Betsy Johnson, the woman in 
the case, claiins that Kennedy and 
Chase had all the paraphernalia of the 
counterfeiters^ and that they turned 
out a lot of lead dollars at Kennedy's 
home, 1612 Ohio avenue, last summer. 
She gave the police one of the dollars, 
wiiich, she alleges, Chase gave her 
W'hen he went away. 

Chase and Miss Johnson, it Is said, 
lived at Kennedy's as man and wife, 
last summer. After Chase went away 
the woman gave birth to a child. She 
afteiward began living with Fred 
Norlander, she claims. Miss Johnson 
demanded some furniture at the Ken- 
nedy hooise which, she clainis, Chase 
bought for her. Kennedy refused to 
give it up, and the woman, angered at 
the turn <yt affairs, told Norlander that 
Kennedy and Chase were counterfeit- 
ers. Norlander carried the information 
to the police, and the latter are now 

searching for further evidences of the 
alleged practice. 

Miss Johnson claims Kennedy waa in 
the habit of gettirtg drunk and peddling 
out some of the alleged counterfeit 
.money, and that Chase fled because 
he was afraid Kennedy would g<?t them 
into trouble. • 

Kennedy denie4B the charge, and 
claims that the whole affair has been 
trumped up. 

The Kennedys are in ]K)or clrcum- 
fetancfcs, Mrs. Kennedy and the children 
being practically destitute. 

Loses Wife and Money. 

Joseph Schlmco failed to prove a 
case against his wife, whom he accursed 
of stealing $370 from him wnile he 
was sick in bed some days ago. It is 
claimed that Mrs. Schimco left home 
to reside at Allouez bay and that she 
took with her $270 of his savings, kept 
in a trunk, and $1(*0 that Schimco says 
he gave her to paj' some bills. At ihd 
trial Schimco admitted that he gave 
his wife the money and the state 
moved for a dismissal. 

Anti-Saloon League Active. 

Next Sunday the slate officers of the 
Wisconsin Anti-Saloon league will be- 
gin an active campaign in Superior 
for law enfrocement. Five represenla- 
tives of the league, from dlffrent sec- 
tions of the state, will be present and 
a meeting will be held at the Ham- 
mond Avenue Presbyterian church iti 
the afternoon. Meetings will be held 
at various other Protestant churcliea 
throughout the city at which promin- 
ent speakers will be provided. 

Driven Out by Fire. 

A fire at the home of Gust Herman, 
1809 Ogden avenue, drove the family 
out In their night clothes early Satur- 
day morning. One of the boys es- 
caped by jumping from a window. 
The blaze is said to have been caused 
by the ignition of some clothes drying 
at the kitchen stove. The damage 
a^nounted to about $300. 

Residents Desert Connors Point. 

People residing on Connor's Point In 
the district to be affected by the rail- 
way Improvements, are moving to 
other parts of the city. In another 
month it is expected that there will be 
few residents left on» the point. The 
houses are all small and are easily 
moved on selighs or wagons to other 
sites that the owners have bought or 
leased. The railway companies have 
given notice of vacation to all those 
who reside on their land.

applies to intrastate business as well as interstate, this 
law is unconstitutional, too. It is intended, of course, 
to apply only to interstate roads, because those are the 
only foads under the control of congress. But its terms 
are practically the same as those in the liability law. 
which has been condemned by the supreme court. 

According to the view of the supreme court, congress 
has erred in these two laws in that while they apply to 
interstate roads only, they apply to all of the employes 
of these roads, regardless"of whether they are engaged 
in interstate or intrastate business. This, in the .opinion 
f the court, renders the law invalid. There may

There is somethmg wrung with anybody 
look the financial and industrial situation 
over and find cause in it for pessimism. 

It IS true that bu>incss, particularly in its speculative 
lines, is not running away, as it was a year ago. It is 
tamer, in all lines, but tiiat is just what the country 
needed alid expected. 

On the other hand, there is no prostration of busi- 
ness anywhere, nor will there be any. The optimistic 
news stories are far more numerous than the pessimisti*;, 
Tlierc are ten items about resumption where there is 
one about suspension. 

Ivasiern buying centers report that buyers from the 
interior are about as numerous as usual. The buying 
is more cautious, of course, but that means that the 
speculative spirit has departed from business, to a large 
degree, as it has lied from the stock market. It is not 
alarming, but wholesome and reassuring, that this is so. 

Perhaps the most comforting feature of the situation 
is that there is no overproduction to be disposed of be- 
fore industry can be resumed. When depression finds 
large surplus accumulations of goods, resumption is 
delayed indefinitely. When there is no overproduction 
at all, it cannot be delayed long. A year ago production 
wa> practicalfy from hand t<> mouth in most lines. Tiicre 
was no overproduction because, generally speaking, the 
demand was greater than the country's capacity to pro- 
duce. A financial crisis must always be followed by 
mnre or less depression, but when it finds a situation such 
as exists in this country, that depression must be short- 

The conditiun of the iron and steel trade is always 
an accurate barometer recording business conditions and 
tendencies in this country. The commerqal agencies 
report that business in these lines is improving every 
day, and the daily stories of resumption of activity after 
several weeks or months of idleness bear this out. Say 
R. G. Dun & Co.: "Each week more contracts placed 
for steel tlian in the week preceding, and coirservative 
buying of the last few months has made the statistical 
position strong. Following the large orders for steel 
rails last week there have appeared several other sub- 
stantial contracts, and more are pending. In addition to 
this business in standard weights the mills have secured 
good orders for light rails." 

The m<iney condition is improving every day. Money 
will shortly be very cheap. That will permit the rail- 
roads to borrow money for contemplated improvements, 
which in turn will give employment to labor, stimulate 
trade in the materials going into railroad improvement, 
and add activity to industrj' in many lines, while giving 
encouragement U) the timid who are waiting to see what 
is going to happen before proceeding even with neces- 
sary business. 

It will be a quiet summer, of course. Politics would 
accomi)lish that if nothing else did. But it will be a sum- 
mer of retrenchment that will make tke situation sounder 
and stronger than it has been in several years, and of 
optimism that will make for confident resumptions in 
at an early date. 

those, ignorant of the law and its devious ways, who 
would think that merely because the set terms of these 
laws apply to men that cannot be reached by federal 
laws is no reason why the good purpose of congress 
should be defeated entirely. They may believe that the 
law ought to be construed so that its provisions would 
cover men engaged in interstate business, even if it is 
invalid as to others. They may think that declaring a 
whole law bad because some of its provisions are ineffec- 
tive is too much like knocking out a law because of a 
misplaced comma or a flyspeck that looks like a period. 

However, that is not the way the supreme court looks 
at it. If it is partly bad, it is altogether bad, in their 
opinion, and must therefore be practically repealed by 
their decision. 

Therefore congress should cure this defect in the law- 
regulating hours of railroad employment, by giving its 
terms and phrases that will meet the objections of the 
supreme court. It should be done at this session, and 
promptly, in order that the intentions of congress may 
not be altogether defeated, or delayed several years, as 
they will be if the law is left as it is and the railroads 
take it into court and have it killed completely. 


A Washington dispatch says that the interstate com- 
merce commission is highly gratified over the fact that 
'■.American railway officials are doing all that lies in 
their power to meet situations that have developed under 
the new laws applying to interstate traffic." 

It seems that one i^ilroad is preparing to try out the 
new nine-hour law at once, though it does not become 
applicable until March 4. Meanwhile most of the other 
roads are clamoring to have the time when the law goes 
into effect extended as long as possible. Again, most of 
the railroads, it appears, have complied with the law re- 
quiring them to make monthly reports to the interstate 
commerce commission covering every phase of their 

So the commission is grateful and pleased, and the 
people are expected to rejoice also. 

There is no occasion, however, for any more rejoicing 
than there is when an individual "consents" to obey the 
law. The railroads, owned by comparatively few of the 
people and controlled by a very few, have become sub- 
ject to laws passed by congress, representing all of the 
people. The railroads have been so accustomed to see- 
ing everything give way before them, including the 
f)eople, congress, the legislatures and the public officials, 
that it is rather a new experience to find a whole people 
legislating to control them and make them subject to 
popular wishes. Yet they stand in the same position 
before the law that any ordinary citizens do. They are 
just as much bound to submit to law as their humblest 
employes are. 

They are conferring no favor upon the people, there- 
fore, by "consenting" to abide by the law. There is no 
more occasion for rejoicing than there would be if a 
group of individuals decided to abide by the criminal 
laws. If the individuals don't obey the law, they are 
forced to do so and punished for failing to do so. If the 
railroads don't obey the law, the same thing will happen 
to them. 

Jamea Keough, irpi\ tliat famous 
weather sanatariuir<j J^diclno Hat, was 
aaked at the St. L,ouis last night why 
they .sent out so majiy talse reports from 
the plaow whe^ tney manufacture weath- 
er to order, so to ^.spuf (c. Mr. Keough 
waa reminded that aitx^A eight limes out 
of ten the man wh^ lia^dlea the weather 
rudder, steers on a bum hunch, for when 
we are looking fori the bahny kind of 
o>:one he i.s Just as «i^ble as not to pull 
out the plug III the wjntry blast tank 
when all the time we had been led to 
expect some warm and cordial weather. 
Mr. Keough says that the one who 
haniile.s the weather up there is a most 
kind and genial oiiiSs.'iHe has a great 
and deep love for hilhianlty. He gets 
many conimunicatic»n.s daily from people, 
who are ordering weather for special oc- 
casions. Of course, he is unable to pro- 
vide weather to suit the application of 
oacli and every correspondent; yet, in 
the fullness of his heart, he labors to. 
strike a happy medium And predict llie 
■iame, so tnat the glad tidings can be 
sent forth to a rejoiciag wurld. When 
his prediction.s go wrong he is most wor- 
ried and vexed, and all that regretful 
siulT. says the man from Medicine Hat. 
He just can't make the weather beliave 
at times. It gets obstreperous, and as a 
consequence, you have cold and whistling 
blasts when the advance literature has 
predicted warmer weather with olieering 
southerly winds. He can't help It. That's 
the reason why we get such a miscel- 
laneous concoction of di versified weather 
Irom the weather haaduuarlers, up at 
Medicine Hat. 

Some people have infinite faith as to 
the ability of the weather man as a fixer, 
says Mr. K'i<jugh. They write him and 
ask. vvltli great earnestness and warmth 
of feeling, to disli up a certain brand of 
weather for a certain occasion. Per- 
haps if their daughter is going to get 
married on next Thursday they will ask 
the weather man to serve a nice, balmy 
day, with sunshine on the side. Tnen 

again, if that hoiTid Mrs. 's girl is 

.-scheduled to get splice<i on Friday they 
are Just as liable ;ts not to write a very 
charming epistle to the man who watches 
the clouds', asking him --to make it nasty

the weather distillery, he is Just trying 
to strike a general average of the many 
requests he ha.s received I'rom those earn-

Then too, adds the wayfarer from 
Medicine Hat. the elements are most de-

Unless all signs fail, the Republican national conven- 
tion is likely to prove an imitation, on a larger scale, of 
the Minnesota Republican state convention of 1904, which 
threw the party in this state into a confusion from which 
it has not yrt emerged. 

It will be remembered that the main cause of trouble 
in the Minnesota convention was that the pre-convontion 
fight grew so hot that both sides adopted the dangerous 
method of holding rump conventions in counties in which 
they were overmatched, and of sending contesting dele- 
gations to the state convention on the chance that they 
might be seated. 

The forces opposed to Secretary Taft and President 
Roo.scvcit arc adopting the same methods this year. 
Such action has been taken already in Florida, and it is 
said that similar tactics are planned in most of the* other 
Southern states. Though Taft has been victorious in 
Ohio, there arc evidences that the Foraker people'intend 
to hold a separate convention and apply with their dele- 
gates for admission to the national convention. A Wash- 
ington estimate of the convention outlook places the 
number of Southern delegates whose seats will be con- 
tested at 280. The national committee is planning on a 
convention lasting five or eight days, when three days 
usually suffices. 

In short, there is blood on the moon. The forces of 
reaction are, apparently, bent on a "rule or ruin" policy. 
At least they will force a bitter convention fight, and 
it is possible that they may engineer or force a bolt 
and briijg about a divided party. 


Speaking to the bankers of is.'ew Yoi;k the other day, 
James R. Forgan, president of the National City bank 
of Chicago, said something that should not be forgotten 
while the talk of regulating banks is in progress. 
Said he: 

I have not seen many bank failures In the last 
. thirty years, but all that I have ever known have 
had one and the same cause; namely, the manage- 
ment making loans directly or Indirectly to itself. 
I have known Incompetent bankers to make heavy 
losses by bad loans and lose their positions on that 
account, but I have never known a bank to fall or 
get Into a failing condition where the oftlcers have 
no personal Interest In the loans. 

Coming from a banker, one of the most successful in 
the country, and one with a very wide experience, this 
remark has vast significance. It would undoubtedly be 
unfair to construe it so broadly as to make it the foun- 
dation for a claim that all bank failures have come from 
this cause. Mr. Forgan does not say that; he merely 
says that all the bank failures he knows about were due 
to this practice. 

A banker, above all others, should be contented to 
stick to his own business. It is a prolitable and an agree- 
able business, affording ample rewards to those that win 
success in it. It is enough in itself to occupy the best 
energies of any man, and experience, pointed by Mr. 
Forgan's observation, proves that it is a dajigerous thing 
for a banker to branch out and seek profit in other lines, 
especially when those lines are speculative. 

Oklahoma, the newest of the states and in its legis- 
lation the most progressive, has a banking law which 
The Herald has before referred to, and which includes 
provisions aimed directly at the practice of bankers 
loaning money to themselves. Section 13 is as follows: 

It shall be unlawful for any active managing 
officer of any bank organized or existing under the 
laws of this state to borrow, directly or indirectly 
money from the bank with which he Is connected 
The officer authorizing a loan to any of said persons 
as well as the p-rson n^celving the same, shall be 
deemed guilty of larceny of the amount borrowfd 



last session ot congress produced a law, which 
will go Into effect March 4, regulating the hours of serv- 
ice for employers on interstate railroads. It is a good 
law, too. It places a reasonable Hmit upon the hours 
during which railroad employes can be compelled to 
work without rest. It has been shown upon many an 
occasion that frightful railroad accidents have been due 
to mistakes made by dispatchers or trainmen who had 
worked .so long without sleep that they were not capable 
of acting normally. The law was designed to 
such abuses. 

Now it is said that under the construction by the 
supreme court of the employers' liability law, wherein it 
was held that the law is unconstitutional because it 


Oklahoma, it appears, believes in going after 
evils as this directly and without apologetic red 
If a banker borrows money out of his own bank, both he 
and the officer who lets him borrow it are to be deemed 
guilty of larceny— of stealing the money— and they are 
to be punished accordingly. 

Safety requires some such regulation as this. Few 
men can be tempted to use the best banking judgment 
in negotiating loans for themselves. They are likely to 
accept security from themselves that they would reject 
when offered by others. Therefore bankers should not 
be allowed to loan to themselves at all. They have their 
deposits on trust, and it is their duty not only to loan 
them to keep business going, but to do it with such dis- 
cretion that the danger from losses shall be at the mini- 
mum. They can hardly be expected to use that discre- 
tion when thej' loan to themselves. 


Some of the railroad magnates have consented 
obey some of the laws. Kind of them, isn't it? 

l>alls and prepare to meet the sudden drop 
in the temperature. We are just as liable 
to find, when we go out to get the 
morning paper— if we gfo— that a nice 
balmy, springlike day, greets us. Of 
course, we are not disappointed; but 
somehow our faith in the guessing 
p<>wer3 of the weather maw-have received 
a little jolt. 

But Mr. Keough sure does stick for the 
weather chemist. He avers that U Is 
not Ills fault that the weather just won't 
behave. Here we have the howling 
winds, the fitful blast and the lowering 
clouds, with indications pointing to more 
to follow. It's almost certain as inside 
information on the market. But like the 
latter tip, some times the atmospheric 
Indications go wrong. Instead of gel- 
ting the regal splendor of a winter storm 
we are handed an anti-climax in thj 
shape of a slushy day with feeble drops 
of rain. But the weather man. poor 
chap, is not to blame. He is a victim of 
circumstances. Like a l<ro4)het. he is not 
without honor, save in his own country. 

He also gets bum dope from his regu- 
lar correspondents, who are supposed to 
put him Jerry to the weather dope. For 
instance. If the guy on the Job out in 
Pocablmaw, wherever that is, sends in 
a long and rambling dissertation on the 
weather, mentioning towards the tenth 
stanza, that it looks as if a storm Is 
gathering and throwing some light on 
tlte possibilities In store for Medicine 
Hat. why of course, the man behind the

together and finally weaves a beautiful 
weatiier romance out of the material at 
iiand. We may have a scene for a pas- 
toral drama, with falling snow and l>eau- 
tiful shiny stars, or again, we may have 
a fine night for a murder, with fitful 
gusts and mantling clouds. The weath-ir 
fixer takes what he has and makes one 
b>^st prediction. He tries hard to please 
and gives the kind of weather wanted, 
but perhaps the youth down at Pocabl- 
maw IS drowsy on the Job and has for- 
gotten to mention some little detail of 
the weather. Maybe he doesn't like to be 
forever harping on the weallier. H has 
gotten to be such a tabo^x^d suljject for 
conversation, anyway. Well with the un-

one feature is much appreciated by us 
readers. The Herald is one of the best 
newspapers in the state. Its editorial ut- 
terances are always dignified and mod- 
erate and impregnated with good sense 
and the paper covers the field in an
